Reflection Questions for Individual or Group Study:

1. What stuck out to you today from the message?

2. What thoughts or ideas are stirred up within you as you read this passage (Eph 3:14 – 19)?

3. What do you sense the Spirit teaching you in vv. 14- 15 when Paul writes, “I kneel before the Father from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name.” ?

4. Who comprises this family?  Is this family limited by geographical location? Ethnicity? Language? Geo-political ideology?  Socio-economic status? 

5. Are there any of these family members with whom you do not get along?  Why? What do you need to do/surrender/change to remedy this?

6. In what areas of your “inner being” do you need to be strengthened with His Power? 

7. What are some steps you can take to become more deeply rooted and established in love, so that you are “filled to the measure of all the fullness of God?”  Is this even possible?
