As we have considered this prayer of the Apostle Paul in these verses, we are confronted with a dominant series of threes: A Trinity of Christian Graces: Faith, Love, Hope A Trinity of Spiritual Prerequisites: wisdom, revelation, light A Trinity of Godly Insight: “that you may know” (v. 18): the Hope of His Calling (Past), the Glory of His Inheritance (Future), and the Exceeding Greatness of His Power (Present).
His Calling, His Inheritance, His Power

Ephesians 2:1-10 • May 19, 2019 • Pastor Paul Edwards
Paul finishes chapter one focusing on the exceeding greatness of God's power which raised Christ from the dead and seated Him at God's right hand. The conjunctive phrase "And you..." which begins chapter two connects all that is true of Christ at the end of chapter one with all that is true of believers in chapter 2.
