Paul is passionate that we understand three key aspects of God’s work in our lives:
- His calling (Ephesians 1:18)
- His inheritance (Ephesians 1:18)
- His power (Ephesians 1:19)
In our previous study, we discovered that God has changed our heart of darkness to a heart of light so we can know these three aspects.
In today’s expositional study, Nathan Johnson looks at the first aspect of Paul’s prayer and how we are to understand the hope of our calling – which is not an activity or job we do but rather its an invitation to a banquet of intimacy.
