The Central Idea Ask Jesus into your heart? Paul has a slightly different take. Paul pleads with God almighty to strengthen Christians in their inner man with power so that Christ Jesus might come dwell within their hearts. I see this as indicating that it is no small thing to have the Living God come dwell within your feeble frame. You can't handle it unless enabled (empowered) by God's Holy Spirit. If Paul can pray this for believers, we can pray it for each other and for ourselves.
