*Thomas S. Myers*
*Plugging Into The Power of God*
* **During the Civil War, a Union soldier from Ohio was shot in the arm during the battle of Shiloh.
His captain saw he was wounded and barked out an order, "Gimme your gun, Private, and get to the rear!"
The private handed over his rifle and ran toward the north, seeking safety.
But after only going about two or three hundred yards, he came upon another skirmish.
So he ran to the east, and found himself in another part of the battle.
Then he ran west, but encountered more fighting there.
Finally, he ran back to the front lines shouting, "Gimme back my rifle, Cap'n.
There ain't no rear to this battle no where!"
When it comes to the troubles of the world, life is unfair and "there ain't no rear to this battle nowhere!"
When it comes to living, you just can't run away and hide.
* This passage of Scripture is a very powerful section of Scripture.
It is very rich and abundant in spiritual truth.
It is a prayer of Paul that must not be avoided.
*Ephesians 3:14-21 *
*14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 **/(in order)/ That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17/ /That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith;/ /that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 /(in order that you)/ May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, /(in order)/ that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God. 20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end.
