God Is All-Powerful

Section 1: God Week 1: God Is Great Day 4: God Is All-Powerful Eph. 3:14-20 Theologians like to say God is omnipotent. That’s just a fancy way of saying God is all-powerful. Oddly, when we say that, we don’t actually mean he can do absolutely everything. There are, in fact, certain things God can’t do. He cannot lie, for example (Titus 1:2).
