to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
// Ephesians 3:21
Paul the Apostle is ending a huge prayer and section of devotion, in this the letter to the church of Ephesus, with big praise to Christ Jesus, which is the rightful way to end all prayer and anything we do in the name of Jesus. How fitting that we end the last week of The Temple Prøject with a focus on Jesus Christ!
This week we want everyone reading from across many churches and everyone in C3 Brooklyn “to go all out” in their praise and worship of Jesus. Heaven is paying attention to the praises of their King Jesus and the Earth is groaning for the sons and daughters of God to lift up massive thanksgiving and praise to the only One who deserves it -- the One who our heart was designed to worship!
Let’s just break every chain with praise, let’s break every evil thought with praise, let’s change the atmosphere in our lives with the praise of Jesus. It never depends on circumstance, for the harder the situation we are facing, the richer the praise. So let’s all unify our hearts, as Paul commends the church to do in this verse, and unite for one cause: to bring glory to Christ Jesus. He deserves it, we were born for it, and the world needs to hear, see it and experience it.
Praise Jesus. We are all Temples looking for something to worship.
The Temple Prøject
