Ephesians 3:17-19: So that Christ may dwell in your hearts

so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Ephesians 3:17-19 NIV

This portion of Ephesians if a prayer from the apostle Paul for the believers in Ephesus.  His prayer is that their hearts would be open to understand all that they have in Jesus.  There are so many believers on the earth who fail to understand all they have through the finished work of Calvary.  We must seek the Lord daily and ask the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts and lives with revelation, knowledge, wisdom, and understanding.  To open our minds and hearts to understand all that we have.  In Jesus we are children of the Living God and because of this we have all the authority and power of Heaven at our disposal.  Our Father is calling us to be people of prayer and His word because His desire is to simply fill the earth with His glory.
