Thursday is Verse Day @faithunlocked – Ephesians 3:8-21 (NLT)

Though I am the least deserving of all God’s people,
he graciously gave me the privilege
of telling the Gentiles about the endless treasures available to them in Christ.
I was chosen to explain to everyone this mysterious plan
that God, the Creator of all things, had kept secret from the beginning.
God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety
to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.
This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.
Because of Christ and our faith in him,
we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence.
So please don’t lose heart because of my trials here.
I am suffering for you, so you should feel honored.
When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father,
the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.
I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources
he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit.
Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him.
Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.
And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should,
how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.
May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully.
Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us,
to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever!
Amen.
– Ephesians 3:8-21
