Ephesians 3:14-21

14 When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, 15 the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. 16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 21 Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.


Q: What does Paul mean by “your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong” (verse 3:17)?

Q: Examine your roots; think about the source of your motives. Are you rooted in God’s love? Or perhaps the love for money, other’s approval, self…? How can you grow closer to God and ensure you are rooted firmly rooted in God’s love?

Q: Think about how you treat others, whether they’re a total stranger or a close family member. Based on how you treat them, is it evident that you are rooted in God’s love? Have you ever felt God’s love through the actions of another person?
