“When I think of the wisdom and scope of God’s plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit. And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” Ephesians 3: 14-19 NLT
His resources are unlimited! He will give us mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit! What marvelous thoughts about what God will do when he is at home in our hearts. We may have the power to understand the depth of his love! Amazing!
How deep is the love of Christ? Can we grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ? I’m not sure we can. But think of this, when we take one step toward him he runs to meet us. His love is deep. No matter how far away we’ve gone, no matter how much we have rebelled against him, he’s ready to forgive us and take us back. The God of the universe, creator of all things, wants a close relationship with each of us. His love is deep. His love is unconditional. His love is unlimited. His love is so deep we can never get to the bottom of it.
Dear Father, Help us grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. We thank you for your love. Help us share Your love with others.
