"I Pray that out of His glorious riches
He may strengthen you with power
through His Spirit in your inner being,
so that Christ may dwell in your hearts
And I pray that you, being rooted and
established in love, may have power,
together with all the saints, to grasp
how wide and long and high and deep
is the love of Christ, and to know this
love that surpasses knowledge- that
you my be filled to the measure of all
the fullness of God."
Ephesians 3: 16-19
This is a powerful prayer uttered by Paul originally to the church of Ephesus. This prayer summarizes the vast and limitless power of God that is open to all believers and serves as a formula to tap the vast powers of God in the entire universe that is centered in Jesus Christ. Being adopted sons of God and co-heirs with Jesus Christ in the kingdom of God, we have the same access to this unlimited power through faith in Jesus Christ.

"So will it be with the resurrection of the dead.
The body that is sown is perishable,
it is raised imperishable;
it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory;
it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;
it is sown a natural body,
it is raised a spiritual body.
If there is a natural body, there is also a
So it is written: 'The first man Adam became
a living being;
the last Adam, a life giving spirit.
The spiritual did not come first, but the natural,
and after that the spiritual.
The first man was of the dust of the earth,
the second man from heaven.
As was the earthly man, so are those who are
of the earth;
and as is the man from heaven, so also are
those who are of heaven.
And just as we have borne the likeness of the
earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of
the man from heaven."
1Corinthians 15: 42- 49
We must not think too much of our physical body because it is earthly and will be reduced to dust after we die. Giving it the right amount of food and care should be sufficient enough. Let us not over indulge and pamper our bodies as though they will last forever. We must focus our attention on our spiritual body which will remain even after our death. We must do everything to conform to the pattern given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ- to live a holy and righteous life pleasing and approved by God. We take on the holiness and righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ imputed upon us when we were born again and became a light of the world and the salt of the earth for the glory of our God.
