Geeking Out Over Ephesians Study – Part 2

Welcome to the Geeks Under Grace official Daily Study post for 6/13/15. Here we will share some thoughts regarding Ephesians 1:15-23 and a simple prayer related to those scriptures. 

Passage

Ephesians 1:15-23 (King James Version)
15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,
16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

Study

do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers;” Ephesians 1:15.
Paul does not cease praying for the church. I personally love finding prayers in the bible because I, myself, get confused on what to pray about and how to pray from time to time. Paul prays that the Ephesians would receive spiritual wisdom, revelatory knowledge and so much more. However prayer is not the last topic covered in this chapter.
“that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 1:20.
Jesus Christ is seated at the right hand of the father. Our Lord and savior was not just another saint you see exhibited in stained glass. Jesus is not just one of the prophets used to bring the word of the Lord to groups of people; Jesus Christ is God’s Word made flesh. Jesus is above any ruler or authority as all things are under His feet. Referring to Jesus, Hebrews 1:3 says “And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.” We as Christians can confidently say that Jesus is the son of God and that He is Lord. 

Prayer

Father, we thank you for another day. We thank you for another opportunity to receive and share your love. Father, we ask for your wisdom and revelation. We ask that you would give our friends and family wisdom and revelation. We desire to know more of you Lord, and we ask that you would continue to show your loving kindness to our friends and family. We thank you for the cross and we accept Jesus Christ as Lord of our lives.
In Jesus name we pray, amen.
