Sermon Your Wow Factor: Releasing God’s Imagination in Our World
How is your vision? What do you see when you are looking. There is always more to be seen than what we can take in with our physical eyes. So Paul learned to see with “eyes of the heart”. (Ephesians 1:18) Though he was in Rome as a prisoner – he saw himself as a free man. Though unjustly accused, falsely arrested, and being unfairly tried – Paul leaned into God’s redemptive power. Though under house arrest by order of Caesar, Paul lived under Christ’s Lordship – not man’s.
This positioned him to pray with “eyes of the heart”. And what he saw revealed how we are transformed as we are humbled by the “height, depth, length, and width of God’s love.” And the “soil of God’s marvelous love” is where we are nourished to see that “God is able to do more than we can imagine or dare to ask.”
Through this, the “inner man” of Paul was transformed. His life was made forever different by the prayer experience of Ephesians 3:14-21. How he did it, and how you can do it is the message of today’s sermon. Listen in:

HOWEVER, we do share basic characteristics, and there are common ways for us to grow. By understanding these common ways, we can best celebrate our unity and our diversity. And through these patterns we can daily lean into God's eternal pattern for us.
