“Far Above All Power”

“What a staggering thought!  The One who is at the right hand of God, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, the One under whose feet all things are in subjection, and to whom all power and authority have been given, is the One who once was a Babe, lying helplessly in a manger in Bethlehem!  …When He became man, when He took our human nature, He was made like unto His brethren.  He became subject to temptation, subject to the frailties of our flesh; and in Him that human nature has now been raised to the heights and is at God’s right hand.  Such is the measure of the power of God.”  –D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones “God’s Ultimate Purpose — Ephesians 1” p. 441-442

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
