Three Ways To Grow (Grow #2) (Ephesians 3:14-21)Hilary Williams, 16/09/2018
Part of the Grow series, preached at a Pulpit Series service
Ephesians 3:14-21. Ps Hilary Williams challenges us to consider how we fulfill God's call for us to grow. While some forms of maturity are automatic, most growth takes effort and process. However we are encouraged in Paul's message to the Ephesians that when God expands our vision of Himself and ourselves, we realise that Christ is both the means and the end of our Christian growth.

14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (ESV)
