But it is not with every rational nature that God enters into fellowship. 3. Genius is said to be the capacity for taking infinite pains; but this really means that the enthusiasm, the love for what he undertakes, makes the man of genius realise the importance of bringing it as near as possible to perfection. 1. Both doctrines must be believed.

I observe that this belief must be as specific as the Advent, not a mere historic belief; not a languid acknowledgment of the fact that Christ has come into the world. It has been truly said that “the world can never be the same after” that Advent “as it was before it, as it would be without it.” The distinctive boundary lines of ancient and modern history meet just at that point of time on which Jesus stands. (G. This I understand to be the distinctive peculiarity of Christianity, not only, but that without which there cannot be any Christianity. How grey it is! I preach, and rejoice that I have to preach, a “Christ that died, yea!

Read Introduction to Ephesians . II. I. You have but to believe in Him and He comes, drawn from heaven, floating down on a sunbeam, as it were, and enters into the heart and abides there. When Christ dwells in the human heart, He dwells there as a living power, not merely attracting all our other affections, but moving, renewing, sanctifying, moulding us according to His own idea, working His own pleasure in us, making men faithful in their daily business, true, righteous, strong for their daily service, for labour, for suffering, for sorrow, for waiting, for whatever Providence may appoint.

What a massive, enormous column of a stem; it is girt with a mass of branches holding up a forest of verdure. So that the apparent confusion, arising from what in other places are regarded as identical, being here conceived as cause and effect, is no confusion at all, but is explained and vindicated by the deep truth that nothing but the indwelling of the Christ can fit for the indwelling of the Christ. And as I do not think that men can, by scientific observation, test and determine that which lies outside of all physics, so neither do I think this failure need lead to the scepticisms which some men make, but which, thank God, the most eminent scientific men do not make, who are many of them reverent, and who are all of them, I believe, seekers after the truth. Where the Spirit is there Christ is (John 14:16, John 14:18).

Because it is feeding at the reservoirs and secret streams deep down in the earth; and so, while this oak is first strengthened to resist the hurricane, and then receiving nourishment from the deep hidden springs and streams, it can stand firmer and firmer.

In the order of his eternal mercy, Christ, the repairer of the breach, comes to purify the temple, that it may again become a fit habitation for the blessed God.

D.). Patr. ), The apostle supplies us with two figures to show the force and necessity of religious affection. In Ephesians 2:10; Ephesians 2:15, and in Ephesians 4:24, there are accompanying phrases which leave no doubt as to the meaning.

Верою мы не только познаем, что Христос страдал за нас и воскрес из мертвых, мы принимаем Его таким, каким Он Себя предлагает для наслаждения и обладания. He wants to work out His purpose and His will in our hearts and lives. 3. And therefore I need not say to you, that the very essence of the gospel economy is the manifestation of that love. The multiplication of Bibles that stand upon bookshelves or lie upon tables is an easy matter, but to multiply copies of walking scriptures, in the form of holy men who can say, “Thy Word have I hid in my heart,” is much more difficult. When I know that God is my own God, that He is with me always, that His promise will be fulfilled to me, what follows?

Ephesians 3:19. γνῶναί τε τὴν ὑπερβάλλουσαν τῆς γιώσεως, κ. τ. λ., and to know what passes knowledge, etc.) How can I have this? Significantly, in Ephesians 3:14-17 there are references to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; and although the names seem to be used almost interchangeably, yet there is a preeminence pertaining to the Father, as well as distinct differences between the Son and the Holy Spirit. (C. Girdlestone, M. Ин. Note: Even in those passages, which are addressed to Christians the "indwelling" is conditional for people who are already Christians. The expression, all things, includes τὰς ἀρχὰς, κ. τ. λ., principalities, etc. ]— ἐν τῷ θεῷ, in God) An antithesis to creatures, even the most excellent, Ephesians 3:10.— τῷ τὰ πάντα κτίσαντι, who created all things) The creation of all things is the foundation of all the rest of the economy, most freely dispensed, according to the universal power of God.

That ye, being rooted and grounded in love: either he means: 1. Again, a mere conventional or traditional acquiescence is not the kind of faith that is required, an acquiescence by which men are called Christians in the sense in which we are a Christian community. It is hardly a paradox to say that the really good man has very rarely a genius for religion.

Now some startling things may happen if you really mean business, but are you afraid to let God run your life? Permanent, and not temporary. λ.] Greek. It did not call nations, but individuals--Peter, James, and John and Nathaniel, and in due time Paul. The expansion of our own affections. To be sure we contemplate Christianity as the grandest scheme of social regeneration, and the only true scheme that the world has ever known. You may observe that in reading the words of my text I omitted the “that” which stands in the centre of the verse. Delitzsch, Bib. Thousands and thousands there have been, I believe, who have loved Christ, and have lived on their love to Him, and have died by the power of that love, and have been translated to glory, though they could not have defined the Divine nature, nor reduced their faith to any intellectual expression. Verse 17 is a corollary to verse 16. A similar exegesis is maintained by Harless and Matthies, while Olshausen looks upon the clause as a subordinate definition of the phrase “to be strengthened.” He maintains that Paul could not pray that Christ would dwell in their hearts, for He already dwelt there. ), The “root” is taken from the field of nature--the “grounding,” or founding, from the world of art. In love. So here the two words probably express the one simple idea of being securely settled and deeply founded. You gratefully embrace and accept it (1 Corinthians 14:37; John 17:17). When Christians become lax in attendance, it is proof that Christ is no longer influencing them. You see, all eternity is ahead of us and God is fitting us for eternity. That ye being rooted - Firmly established - as a tree is whose roots strike deep, and extend afar. Now, if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his; and if Christ be in you, etc." What can be of more importance than the knowledge of God?—Success, wealth, comfort, ease are not the best ends of life. In regard to this breadth, length, depth, height, all which are one magnitude, there is nothing broad, long, deep, high in any creature. Beecher. Ephesians 4:4-6; Ephesians 4:18; Ephesians 4:21; Ephesians 4:30; Ephesians 5:1-2; Ephesians 5:18; 2 Corinthians 13:14.— ἐν τῷ χριστῷ, in Christ) Construe with, should be.(42). They take up, they drink in, the nature of the love they live in;--they are always assimilating themselves to it, and they send up its sweet savour by little, silent threads, which are always running to the fountain of life. Love was the great principle of the true religion, and the apostle wished that they might be fully settled in that. "Dwell" is not only just a living in, or a dweller, but it also can carry the thought of "pervade" or inhabit every part or area of the heart. Ephesians 3:17. κατοικῆσαι κ. τ. Are you afraid of what God might do if you do yield yourself entirely to Him, afraid what God might do with us if we really put ourselves in His hands? above, on Ephesians 2:17; 2 Corinthians 13:5), in which faith is the appropriating instrument on the part of man (hence διὰ τῆς πίστεως). In a word, we may pray for, and strive to be filled with, such a measure of the fulness of God and his grace, as God shall see fit to give, and as our capacities are or may be prepared to receive; God is not straitened towards us, let us not be straitened in ourselves: Open thy mouth wide, says God, and I will fill it. The third relates to the second, the fourth to the first. And he's praying that Christ may have complete freedom in our hearts, in our lives, not as a guest, not as a lodger; but he is praying that we will have the full realization of Christ living in us—in other words, that He is enshrined in our heart, in our affections, in our emotions, in our very innermost being. De Wette takes κατοικῆσαι as an infinitive of purpose or design, and regards the clause as describing the completion of “the strengthening.” Bernhardy, p. 365. (R. Wardlaw, D. D.), I seem to see that grand old oak that I have known, and you may have known such an one from your childhood.

(Bristow), Ephesians 3:17 “that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that ye, being rooted and grounded in love”. Moreover, the antithesis of the apostles and prophets of the New Testament to the sons of men leads to the conclusion, that by this appellation the ancient prophets are principally intended; for example, Ezekiel, who is often called בן אדם, son of man, and has copiously described the city and house of God, as Paul does in this place.— ἐν πνεύματι, in the Spirit) the gift of whom was reserved for the New Testament, with a view to the glorifying of Christ. that opinion becomes the adopted law of the land; it is the ruling force; it is the recognized idea. Apply these words to your case. From the wrestling of Jacob at Penuel to the vision of St. John at Patmos one thing is plain—that the mind of man cannot conceive Him in His entirety any more than the eye can see Him. God bade Moses receive from the people oil for the light, and to set up a candlestick with seven lamps, ever burning with this oil, to illuminate the holy place. If I may be a little technical, the Greek word "to dwell," that Christ may dwell down in your hearts by faith, is a prayer for intimate fellowship.

I would just notice, that the heart in which Christ dwells must be an undivided heart. The rule of Christian life is not an outward law; it is a character. You remember it when you were a child, and now you are a man it does not seem to be any older! A wonderful thing, this! But it is the manly way of taking hold of the Lord Jesus Christ by the enthusiasm of love, and making Him the supreme object of our desire, and of our allegiance. He is the source of spiritual life to the whole soul; of spiritual knowledge as well as of spiritual affections. Ephesians 3:4. πρὸς ὁ, whereby) This expression is not exclusively to be referred to in a few words, but to the whole thought; and πρὸς marks the analogy, according to [“from which ye may understand”]: as in the common saying, the size of the lion may be inferred from the size of his claw.
