  4. Praying for POWER Eph 3:14-21

  5. For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more that all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. Eph 3:14-21

  9. But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God-havinga form of godliness but denying it’s power. 2 Tim 3: 1-5a

  11. “Today, after 2 thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed his blood upon the Cross. As a Christian, I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice.” • “It (The Government) regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the family as the basis of national life.” • “Secular schools can never be tolerated because such schools have no religious instruction, and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith.”

  23. Therefore we do lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Cor 4:16-18.

  28. Pastor Francis Chan

  29. POWER OVER SELF GLORIFICATION • But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first. Matt 19:30. • Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave-just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. Matt 20:26-28. • I wrote to the church, but Diotrephes, who loves to be first, will have nothing to do with us. 3 John 9.

  31. Bethany Hamilton “Bad things are bound to happen to everyone. That’s life. Here’s my advice: don’t put all your hope and faith into something that could suddenly and easily disappear. And honestly, that’s almost anything. The only thing that will never fail you is God and your faith in him.” Bethany Hamilton, www.soulsurfer.com

  32. Joni Eareckson Tada

  33. POWER IN OUR WEAKNESSES To keep me from being becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given to me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, than I am strong. 2 Cor12:7-10.

  34. Dietrich Bonhoeffer “In the almost fifty years that I worked as a doctor, I have hardly ever seen a man die so entirely submissive to the will of God.” EberhardBethge, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, A Bibliography, page 927

  35. POWER OF SPIRITUAL WISDOM • For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Cor1:18. • The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1 Cor2:14.

  36. Corrie Ten Boom

  37. POWER OF LOVE • “For a long moment we grasped each other’s hand’s, the former guard and the former prisoner. I had never known God’s love so intensely as I did then.” Corrie Ten Boom, Tramp for the Lord, (1974) • “There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still.” Betsie Ten Boom.

  38. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of the fullness of God. Eph 3:17b-19

  39. Awesome God, amazing love. • Being rooted and established in love. • To grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. • To know this love surpasses knowledge.

  40. If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, buthave not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. • If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. • If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. 1 Cor 13:1-3
