LThe Bible tells us plainly that we are in a battle or struggle that is way over our heads. The battle we face is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers and the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms (Eph 6:12).
This battle is fought in the life of every Christian, by way of the relationships we have as: children of light living in a dark world (Eph 4:1- 5:14), as Wives, Husbands, Children, Fathers, Slaves/workers, and Masters/bosses (Eph 5:15-6:9). Therefore since God’s eternal purpose, message and glory is at stake, Paul by the Spirit of God makes intercession for the family of God, so that by the power of God, they may grasp/comprehend the love of God to the glory of God (Eph 3:14-21). Finally, Paul will implore the saints to always keep on praying for the all the family which derives its name from the Father – Eph 6:18. Life is a battlefield, we should grasp the love of God and always pray for the saints to grasp it!
