19Y cuál aquella supereminente grandeza de su poder para con nosotros los que creemos, por la operación de la potencia de su fortaleza,

 Chapter 1, note, gives the saints before God; the prayer of chapter 3, Christ in them. (Ephesians 3 by J.N. Darby)
 Here the prayer is not, as in the first chapter, that they might know the power that had wrought toward them; it is now that their hearts might be in the secret of His grace according to the power that works in them. That is, he looks at the inner source, not merely at the glorious results. (Ephesians 3 by W. Kelly)
 It is the Father's love which is above all. The effect of the one prayer {Eph. 1} is, that you look down upon the immense scene that is put under Christ; and it is intended of God that you should. But the effect of the second {Eph. 3:14-21} is rather, you look up in the enjoyment of the love that is the secret of the glory—and the glory the effect and fruit of the love, and that which evidences what the love must have been that has given such glory. But blessed as glory is, the love that gives the glory is still deeper and better. (Remarks on Ephesians 3:1-13 by W. Kelly)
 The Father of Christ is that relationship which brings out the love, just as the kingdom of Christ is connected with His conferred or human glory. (Remarks on Ephesians 3:1-13 by W. Kelly)
 All families in heaven and earth, let them be principalities and powers, angels, Jews or Gentiles, as well as the Church of God, all come under “the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” The title Jehovah is restricted to a particular race: the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, is unlimited in its range, and brings in every class of beings that God has made. (Remarks on Ephesians 3:1-13 by W. Kelly)
