14This is why I kneel before the Father.15Every ethnic group in heaven or on earth is recognized by him.16I ask that he will strengthen you in your inner selves from the riches of his glory through the Spirit.17I ask that Christ will live in your hearts through faith. As a result of having strong roots in love,18I ask that you'll have the power to grasp love's width and length, height and depth, together with all believers.19I ask that you'll know the love of Christ that is beyond knowledge so that you will be filled entirely with the fullness of God.20Glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine by his power at work within us;21glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus for all generations, forever and always. Amen.
1Therefore, as a prisoner for the Lord, I encourage you to live as people worthy of the call you received from God.2Conduct yourselves with all humility, gentleness, and patience. Accept each other with love,3and make an effort to preserve the unity of the Spirit with the peace that ties you together.4You are one body and one spirit, just as God also called you in one hope.5There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism,6and one God and Father of all, who is over all, through all, and in all.
