This week Dave continues our series looking at truths about who we are to God, with I Am… Flabbergasted.
I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name.
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge — that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Verses for Reflection:
2 Timothy 1:7-8
- Do you ever feel like a bad Christian? What things are you basing your judgement on? Are these things actually valuable ways to assess God’s work in your heart?
- How can we assess ourselves in a more helpful way for our own personal encouragement and growth? Do you think the 5 area of security would be more helpful?
- What sort of person do you think God wants to transform you into? Dave said these Iranian teenage church leaders are a good picture for him. What is your picture?
