Can you imagine things changing?

In our world can you imagine things changing?

In our church can you imagine things changing?

In your life can you imagine things changing?

That is what Paul prays for.

Father we pray that, according to the riches of your glory, you may grant that we may be strengthened in our inner being with power through your Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith, as we are being rooted and grounded in love.
We pray that we 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 we may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to you Father who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to you be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.
(Ephesians 3:14-21, NRSV). Slightly amended

Preached by Richard Humphrey on Sunday, June 10th, 2018

“this slight momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure” (2 Corinthians 4:17)

These words ask us have we become so focussed on this world and this life that it’s attractions mean that glory will have to wait, and its afflictions so serious that no weight of glory counter balances them?
