6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availS anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith working through love.

An expansion on the relationship between faith and love can be found in the most profound prayer of Eph 3, which prayer aims to effect "being filled unto all the fullness of God."

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father,
15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,
16 that he would grant you*, according to the riches of his glory:

THAT you* may be strengthened with power
through his Spirit
in the inward man;
17 THAT Christ may dwell in your* hearts through faith;
TO THE END THAT you*, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 may be strong to apprehend with all the saints
what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
19 even to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge,
THAT you* may be filled unto all the fulness of God.

unto him who is able to do
exceeding abundantly
above all that we ask or think,
according to the power that works in us,
21 unto him [be] the glory
in the Church
and in Christ Jesus
unto all generations forever and ever.
