For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name.

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

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.

Paul’s Prayer for the Ephesians, Ephesians 3:14-21

I Should Have Said …

A little over a year ago I was visiting with my extended family and some of their close friends. We were relaxing over dinner when all of a sudden one close friend of my grandfather’s threw out a spiritual dart.

You know what I’m talking about right? It was a quick sentence to point out something he thought I believed and he disagreed with. Out in public with about 10 plus peeps in the room (I was the youngest), he was engaging me spiritually but he was not interested in a conversation. I know this because I tried.

I had a perfect response for his comment. It was memorized and would only take about 5 or 10 minutes to share. I was prepared, right?

Wrong. In actuality, I only had about 5 or 10 seconds. I realized this later, anyways. In my attempt to respond, I was cut off and quickly the topic changed from a spiritual conversation to … well something else. Afterward I thought of the perfect one-liner if ever in this situation again with this group of people. Unfortunately, I missed an awesome opportunity.

Recently, Andy Stanley, pastor at North Point Community Church, did a sermon series on just this topic. The title is Prepared and you can watch it online or listen to it via podcast. I highly recommend listening to it. He covers a general response for most darts thrown your way, followed by a response to what people might say about Scripture, and concludes with talking about why bad things happen. Check it out.

Have you ever been in the situation I was in? What did you say? What should you have said?

Father we are different people from different cities, states, and countries. But You see us all and You know us all.

You know every need of every life represented here. Father right now I ask that You meet us at our point of individual need.

As our lives are in line with Your Word, I ask that You meet the needs of our lives in Jesus name Amen.
