Ephesians 3:14-16 This sermon is on the first part of Paul’s prayer for the church in Eph. 3:14-19. To this point in Ephesians, we’ve seen how God has created the church in Christ as part of His eternal plan. Chapters 4-6 will give guidelines as how to live out the love of Christ toward each other in the church, in our families, and in our communities. But before he tells us what to do, Paul wants us to know what has already been done for us. Before we can live out our faith, we must know Christ’s love for us first.
