For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Have you ever overworked yourself to the point that when someone does the smallest thing to annoy you, you snap at them? I am pretty sure we have all been there. Ephesians 3:14-21 reassures us that we do not have to rely on our own strength. In fact, we should not even try or we will fall short every time. Rather, we should lean into the strength and power of the Holy Spirit and root ourselves and our actions in God’s love. When we do this, we will be filled by Him so that we are able to continue to pour out His gospel to others.
