Read Ephesians 1:15-23

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. Ephesians 1:17 NIV

Observation
Paul was writing to the Ephesians. He had heard of their great faith and love that they were displaying for others. He understood they needed to continue growing in Christ. The more we know of Him as our model, the more we can become like Him. Paul’s prayer was that the more we gain of His Spirit and receive personal revelation, the closer we become to Him.

Application
We must desire and obey what it takes to receive wisdom and revelation: Reading the Word, personal prayer time, attending church, attending connection group, and personal worship help us to know God better, take us closer to Him and strengthen our walk with Him. Without any one of these we become weaker.

Prayer
Father, we thank You that You gave us such a model in the perfect life of Jesus. We choose to walk in Your spirit and become more like You. Thank You for giving us the faith and power to be more than overcomers; that we may not only grow more like you, but show others how to as well. Amen
