God offers unlimited power, within parameters

The apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians highlights the power of God, not only as a potential power but the actual “exercise of his power” 3.7. His is a “power that is working” 3.20.

His power has parameters, in Christ, and works for the good and for the strength of those in him.

“This power [God] exercised in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms far above every rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come” Ephesians 1.20-21 NET.

God’s power continues to operate in Christ for those who enter into relationship with him.

God is acting in this world. He desires to exercise his power to enliven and enlighten as many people as possible.

And he does it all in Christ, whom he raised and exalted. What happened to Christ is the guarantee of what can happen to us.

God gladly reveals the path to enter into Christ. This path is available to everyone. Entering into Christ and remaining in him ought to be our priority.

For all else is weakness and failure and suffering.
