Eph. 3, 20-21

I.

This great prayer properly ends in a great doxology–praise God for all his rich blessings.

He “is able to do exceeding abundantly.”  Being God, he is able to do all things “above all we ask or think.”  Impossible to express the full meaning of these words.  When we have asked all we can think or imagine he is able and willing to do for men, limited only by impossibility and eternity.

II.

“According to the power that worketh in us,” by the power of the Holy Spirit, working strongly in us, expelling evil, purifying and refining the affections and desires and implanting goodness.

III.

“Unto him be glory in the church.”  May unceasing praise rise to him in all assemblies of the people of God wherever these glad tidings are preached.  “Praise is comely for the upright.”

(a)  “By Christ Jesus, through whom and for whom all these mercies and powers are wrought.”

(b)  Throughout all ages, world without end”–throughout the eternity of the eternities–in the coming world as well as in this.

His boundless love and saving power and goodness shall be the theme of our praise throughout an endless eternity.
