16 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 hearts2 by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height [of His love];
19 So to know the love of Christ, which exceeds all knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God.
20 Now to him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, [From the Word of the Lord within: "Hope releases the power of God to change you." What hope? The true hope: the hope to become pure and sin free, to be translated into the kingdom while still on earth, and to enter union with Christ and the Father.]

|Galatians 4:19 |
19 My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ is formed in you,3 [Each word we hear Him speak to us imparts the life of God, who is Christ, to our hearts; each word is engrafted into our hearts forming Christ in us.]
