The WOW! of Your Reach
Recently we’ve spent a lot of time in Ephesians 3:14-19 as we’ve talked about rooting and reaching. But you might wonder, “How far or extensive can my reach really be?” If the answer to that question was contingent on your own or my own abilities, it would be “not that far” but when we add God to the mix, the answer changes quite a bit. After talking about being rooted and grounded in the love of God Paul writes this in Ephesians 3:20-21: Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen
With God the potential of our reach is amazing. Since it is God’s power at work in us, He can extend our reach in a way that is beyond our imagination. God’s power extends our ability to “reach” into the world in which we live but also into the “unseen” world. God’s power extends our “reach” from our present time to eternity.
If you want to make an impact in this world…if you want to have an incredible “reach”…then get rooted and grounded in the love of God. You will not be disappointed.
