It’s our final week with Ephesians 3:20. For good measure, shall we tack Eph. 3:21 onto it as well? It goes something like this:
to him be the glory in the assembly and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen. Eph. 3:21 WEB
What a great ending to this doxology Paul offers. It’s glory for God.
Together, the verses look like this:
Now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to him be the glory in the assembly and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen. Eph. 3:20-21 WEB
Or, as the Message so beautifully relays it:
God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.
Glory to God in the church!
Glory to God in the Messiah, in Jesus!
Glory down all the generations!
Glory through all millennia! Oh, yes!
Eph. 3:20-21 MSG
How can we offer glory to God today? Us – individually – you and me?
I must be honest, offering glory doesn’t always come naturally for me. Ouch! But this year, the glory’s going to flow. It’s going to be different, so here we go…
Maybe it’s right now, replaying the words of Eugene Peterson (The Message) above.
Or, perhaps we offer our own words, praising God and offering Him the glory. Either is okay. Glory is vital.
He’s a big God. He’s a loving Father. He’s a capable Creator. He is salvation. Glory to our God through all generations!
Action Steps ~
Where has His Spirit personally nudged me?
Where in life has God done more than I can imagine?
Let’s compare answers on the comments here or consider a private jot in our journals. Then give Him glory. Amen!
