Ephesians 3 - God's love for all

Through Ephesians 3, Paul is explaining how God is no longer just for Israel but for all people, back then the Gentiles of the land and today you.

There is not a single person who cannot approach God with freedom and confidence, because the death of Jesus opened a way for each and every person to be welcomed before God.

God does not only reach out to those in need with love but with power. When you are down-trodden, feeling crushed and persecuted know that God's power is in you to strengthen you right down to your inner being (verse 16).

When you allow God into your heart, his love and power become your roots that help you to stand firm. Paul's prayer (verses 14-21) speaks of God's amazing love for you. But can you grasp it? Can you grasp how wide and long and high and deep his love is for you?

You may not be able to fathom it, you may not be able to imagine that God could change your life, you may find it hard to believe that God could love, even you. But God can do immeasurably more than you could ever ask or even imagine.

If you are feeling hard pressed on every side and crushed then I encourage you to listen to this song with an open heart and allow God to speak to you and show you his peace.
