Ephesians (Program #34) – God Glorified in the Church and in Christ

In Ephesians Chapter 3, the apostle Paul offers a marvelous praise to God. Now that in itself may not seems so remarkable. But what is remarkable? Is that this praise is the highest praise in the New Testament.

3: 20-21 “But to Him who is able to do super abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power which operates in us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus unto all the generations forever and ever. Amen.

The other remarkable feature is that this praise is offered in the midst of Paul’s unveiling of the Church in its’ highest aspect. To Him be glory in the Church and this highest aspect is as the fullness of God.

1 Peter (Program #7) – Peter’s Well-Speaking Concerning the Triune God

The apostle Peter opens his first epistle with a long and truly marvelous blessing of the Triune God.  This blessing occupies ten of the twelves verses and these verses are full of wonderful, spiritual expressions based not on mere praise to God for His mighty works of creation and even salvation but are full of Peter’s well-speaking of all three persons of the God-head concerning what God has done and will do subjectively in all of His chosen ones.
