Day 22 | Zach & Megan Quest
Ephesians 1:16-23

Imagine the joy and hope Paul must have felt as he
reflected and wrote to the church in Ephesus. Just years
before, he had planted the church (Acts 18:19) and spent
several years teaching (Acts 19:8-10); now it was thriving.
Paul’s message to the Ephesians is not just of praise, but of
continual loving guidance. He wishes for them to know the
hope to which Christ called them – to know the riches and
glorious inheritance his holy people would one day obtain,
and lastly to know the power we possess as believers in
Christ. He reminds the Ephesians that the same power that
resurrected Jesus lives within them…. and us!
His words are simple, yet profound. They are also
easy to say, but easy to forget. In a world that convinces us
we need more power, more strength, more of everything –
this is a reminder that we have everything we need living
within us through Christ.
Our prayer for you all this season is the same prayer

Paul had for the Ephesians: that you would feel the life-
changing hope we are promised as believers, and the
power that exists within us through Christ. Whatever this sea
son looks like for you, know that no season, feeling, or
moment lasts in comparison to the eternal gift we have
waiting for us.
