Spiritual Growth

Ephesians 3:16-19

“I pray that… Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power 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, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

This is Paul’s prayer for the people of Ephesus and this is our same prayer for our community of faith.
