Ephesians 1:17-2117 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[a]of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.
This Scripture is loaded with tons of golden nuggets for our faith. In our faith we must seek to worship God in wisdom and in truth. What we learn about Him with our minds should change our hearts; ultimately this should bring us closer to Him. If we understood what God had in store for us and everything that He promises us we would count everything in this world as dust in comparison.
The new X-Men movie came out this month, "X-Men: Days of Future Past" This movie displays many characters with amazing powers. But what God promised to those who believe in Him is even greater!!! It is His power. Christ living inside of those who have accepted Him into their hearts. This is the same power that raised Him from the dead, and the same power that healed people supernaturally. How cool is that?
We live in a culture where everyone wants to be a "Boss" However God elevated Jesus to be the boss of all bosses and the King of all kings. And every boss, CEO, or ruler will bow at his feet and proclaim that he is the eternal ruler. Knowing this, how will you approach your month of July?
