Read this verse and it got me thinking.
It is broken down in two parts. The first is what I hope people can say about me as I try my best to follow Jesus. The second is what we should be praying over our students.
(Part 1) For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you,remembering you in my prayers. (Part 2) I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
Part one is as I try to live out my calling and try to follow Jesus, I hope I can do that in a way were people see my faith and my love for God and for His people and know God more because of it. Part two is the prayer we should be praying over our ministry and our students as their mentors and encourage them, as Paul is encouraging the people in Ephesus, to seek wisdom and revelation so they know Jesus better.
Let this be our prayer. Take it to heart this week. Pray this about you. Pray this about your ministry.
