Ephesians – Thu – 22-07-28



Do you have a wild imagination? Do you think up outlandish things? Do you have vivid and colorful dreams? Many people do. I am often amazed at the imagination of artists and authors. They sometimes dream up entire worlds and stretch our imaginations by their work. Science fiction does that for me. It is one of my favorite genres.  I guess it started by watching Star Trek when I was a youngster. My brother and I would pretend to be the crew of the Enterprise. That love of sci-fi has lasted my life. In the last couple of decades, sci-fi novels displaced westerns and thrillers as my favorite books. Oh, I know science fiction is fiction. But traveling throughout the cosmos to explore sounds like tremendous fun.

Why all this talk about imagination? Because our imagination is mentioned in Ephesians 3:20-21, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” (NIV)

You see, God is not limited. He exists without limitation of space and time. He is all powerful, eternal, present everywhere and holy. And, do you know another thing he is not limited by? Your imagination. You can’t measure how much more God can do than in your wildest imagination. And his power is at work in us.

Favorite Verse – Tue – 21-08-10



I was speaking recently and asked the audience to name the biggest amount of money they could imagine. They couldn’t say something like “all the money in the world.” They had to give a specific dollar amount. One person spoke up and said, “A quadrillion dollars.” When I asked if anyone could think of more, another replied, “A quadrillion quadrillion dollars.” Now that’s a lot of money! But, given a bit of time, I’m sure you could think of an even bigger number.

Speaking of large numbers, scientists have worked to measure the size of the Milky Way Galaxy. The distance across is truly mind-boggling! And yet the universe is far bigger! You and I can think of some exceptionally large things!

This brings me to my favorite verse in the New Testament. In fact, it is my favorite in the entire Bible. Ephesians 3:20-21 says, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”

This is a mind-blowing passage! God can do immeasurably more than we can imagine — way more than thinking of a quadrillion quadrillion dollars or the distance across the universe!

Remember this verse when things look impossible. The simple fact is, we have no clue what God can do!
