A Fresh Jawbone — A Thought for this Lord’s Day

“For this reason I bow my knees to the Father [of our Lord Jesus Christ], of whom every family in [the] heavens and on earth is named, in order that he may give you according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with power by his Spirit in the inner man; that the Christ may dwell, through faith, in your hearts, being rooted and founded in love, in order that ye may be fully able to apprehend with all the saints what [is] the breadth and length and depth and height; and to know the love of the Christ which surpasses knowledge; that ye may be filled [even] to all the fulness of God. But to him that is able to do far exceedingly above all which we ask or think, according to the power which works in us, to him be glory in the assembly in Christ Jesus unto all generations of the age of ages. Amen.”  (Eph. 3: 14 – 21).


God our Father, Thee we worship,

Own the glory of Thy grace;

Joying in Thy sovereign purpose

That with Christ should be our place.


Abba, Father! He who knows Thee

Has Thy Name to us declared;

And Thy love for Him unchanging,

By Thy many sons is shared.


Now Thy glory is before us, –

Fam’lies named by Thee alone, –

We, the firstborn ones, adore Thee,

Bless Thee, as in Christ made known!
