An Eternal Christmas Wish

24 12 2012

When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 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. 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. 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. 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. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.     Ephesians 3:14-21

IMG_0090During this season of celebration of Christmas, we are reminded of the ultimate gift of the savior, His birth, His life and His resurrection. We are so thankful for the precious gift of salvation that is available to each of us. Paul’s prayer represents the high hopes that we have for each other – empowered with inner strength through His spirit, that Christ will make His home in our hearts as we trust Him, that we would be deeply rooted in God’s love, that we would understand the expanse of God’s love for us, that we would experience the love of Christ, that we would be made complete in His fullness. And praise God! that this work would continue in us for all generations. It is a powerful, complete wish that we can share with each other. It is my hope and wish for you.
