Passage: Ephesians 3:14-21

Series: We Are Wellspring

We want to do good. We really do! Our problem is usually not absence of desire but strength to do the good that we want. We want to love our neighbors, serve others, help the hurting, but we struggle simply to vacuum, mow the lawn and cook dinner before we collapse on the couch to watch the highlights of the Cubs game. How do we find strength to do all that God has called us to do? While we see God’s cosmic purposes for his people (Eph 3:10–11), we struggle with impotence to achieve those purposes. How do we gain the strength to do the good that we need to do? When we kneel for inner strength, we grasp the extent of Christ’s love so that we are surprised by his surpassing power (Eph 3:20-21).
