Roots & Fruits

In the prayer below Paul describes how God the Holy Spirit will produce the fruit of the Spirit in the Ephesian Christians as they are rooted and grounded in the agape-love of Christ.

Paul’s Prayer For The Spiritual Growth Of The Ephesian Christians

When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.

I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit so Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him.

May your roots grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.

May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.  EPHESIANS Chapter 3 vv 14-19
