Ephesians 1:15-23 I have heard of your faith in Jesus and your love toward all the saints, and for this reason I do not cease to give thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers. I pray that the God of our Savior Jesus Christ, the God of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know God, so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which God has called you, what are the riches of Gods glorious inheritance among the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of Gods power for us who believe, according to the working of Gods great power. God put this power to work in Christ when God raised Jesus from the dead and seated him at the right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the age to come. And God has put all things under Jesus’ feet and has made him the head over all things for the church, which is the body, the fullness of God who fills all in all. .
