Ephesians 3:20 “Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine,”
“More than all” . . . I am intrigued by this phrase. It’s grammatically incorrect. If someone were “grading” the writer’s work, they would have gotten points taken off. Sometime ago, I heard someone speak on this scripture and they pointed out: how can something be “more than all”? All is all.
But not when you’re talking about Jesus Christ. He is able to accomplish (complete, finish, achieve) abundantly (richly, profusely, lavishly) far (extremely) more than all we can ask (request, expect, inquire) or imagine (envision, visualize, dream of).
The “more” of God is what keeps me moving on the journey of faith. Yes, sometimes I have trouble remembering that God offers more. Sometimes it’s so clearly obvious. Sometimes I have trouble seeing it.
But that’s life as a disciple of Christ. Looking for “something more” – counting on “something more” – expecting “something more”.
These blog entries “Something More” are just my thoughts, reflections, and wonderings as I journey this life, seeking the “more” of God. May all who read them be graced with Something More.
