The Sunday lesson for December 20, 2020.
Jesus' Exaltation (Ephesians 1:15-23)Phillip Stuckey, December 27, 2020
Part of the A Study of Christ series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
We have been emphasizing this year that knowing Jesus is one of the most important things we can ever do (John 17:3). In our last study in this series, we considered the humiliation the Lord endured for our sake. Now in this last lesson, we want to consider how the Father exalted Him and how He continues working to redeem and preserve the saints.

Ephesians 1:15–23 (Listen)
15 For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, 16 I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, 18 having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might 20 that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22 And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.
