Paul’s prayer begins by telling the Ephesians that God called the gentiles to enter into the same gospel that God gave to the Jews. He says that God gave him grace to be a minister to the gentiles. Paul says that there is one body, one Spirit, called into one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all. This is that Christ may dwell in you hearts by faith. What was creeping into the church was worldliness, the want and desire to have all the things of this world. Ephesus was one of the wealthiest cities in the first century. It was on the silk road from China. That desire was corrupting the church. They would eventually lose their power and strength in the Holy Ghost. Paul prayed, now unto Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
