  • 1. Changing Our Hearts, Our Habits, and Our Holiness Chapter 1:15-23
  • 2.
    • Blessed in the Heavenly Realms
      • Transformation of heart and life,
      • The very authority of God, and
      • Backed by the very power of God.
    • Blessed with Spiritual Blessings
      • Adoption, Redemption and Forgiveness,
      • Grace, and Wisdom and Understanding.
    • Chosen
      • Before the world began
      • To be a part of God’s Master plan
    • Sealed
      • By the power of God Himself – in Person
      • He guarantees our salvation and redemption by His life
  • 3.
    • Five Major types of Prayer:
      • Repentance,
      • Supplication or Petition,
      • Intercession,
      • Thanksgiving, and
      • Praise or Adoration.
    • Importance of Prayer (Opinion Poll)
      • To seek God's guidance ( 27% )
      • To thank God ( 23% )
      • To be close to God or the divine ( 19% )
      • To help others ( 13% )
      • To improve a person's life ( 9% )
      • Other ( 4% )
      • Don't know ( 5% )
  • 4.
    • Recognizes our unworthiness
    • Recognizes that God does not have to do anything for us.
    • It is humbling to be thankful.
    • True thanksgiving is more than Gratefulness, it is a heartfelt bond
  • 5.
    • For Hope
      • Confident Expectation – based on God’s character and truth – without physical evidence
      • Eternal Life, but also (Jeremiah 29:11)
        • A plan for your life,
        • A plan to prosper you – spiritually,
        • A plan not to harm you – spiritually, and
        • A plan for a future.
  • 6.
    • For Richness
      • Understanding our inheritance
      • We are heirs and joint heirs with Jesus Christ
      • Whatever He inherits, we inherit.
    • Don’t live life as a spiritual pauper – while the riches of Christ Jesus are meant for you.
  • 7.
    • For Power
      • The power of God is “incomparably great”
      • God has made Himself – His power – available to you and I
      • There is no sin too strong, no habit too big, not even death – because He can raise us from the dead.
      • No demon, demonic power, nor even Satan himself has the power to overcome anything that God has done for us.
      • His power is proven – as are His promises – in raising Jesus from the dead
  • 8.
    • Paul prays that we understand and that we open our hearts to perceive.
    • Paul’s prayer of petition for the Ephesians is four fold.
      • That we receive the Spirit wisdom and Revelation and that we have an attitude that accepts the truth of that wisdom and revelation.
      • That we open the eyes of our heart to the hope to which He has called us
      • That we open the eyes of our heart to the riches and richness in Christ Jesus
      • That we open the eyes of our heart to the power that is on our side
