Ephesians 3:14-21Contemporary English Version (CEV)
Christ’s Love for Us
14 I kneel in prayer to the Father. 15 All beings in heaven and on earth receive their life from him.[a]16 God is wonderful and glorious. I pray that his Spirit will make you become strong followers 17 and that Christ will live in your hearts because of your faith. Stand firm and be deeply rooted in his love. 18 I pray that you and all of God’s people will understand what is called wide or long or high or deep.[b]19 I want you to know all about Christ’s love, although it is too wonderful to be measured. Then your lives will be filled with all that God is.
20-21 I pray that Christ Jesus and the church will forever bring praise to God. His power at work in us can do far more than we dare ask or imagine. Amen.
