Know The Love Of God

Published on by simondisciple

"I pray that out of His glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the fulness of God." (Ephesians 3 v 16-19)

 

The Bible talks about four dimensions of God's love - its breadth, length, depth and height. The Bible also lets us know the result of coming to this full understanding of God's love - we become filled with the fullness of God. How deep is your love? How far can your love go? How much love can you give? How much can it endure?

 

It is important that we are filled with the fullness of God, for until we are filled with His fullness, we have nothing supernatural to give the world. You can only give what you have, and the more you have, the more if it you can give. Therefore, when your love is so deep, full and wide, you can give more of it and influence many more people with it. God has given you His love and the ability to love like Him.

 

Now, you do not only love those who love you; you must also love everyone with "agape" - the unconditional love of Christ. This is the kind of love that can go to any length, reach the deepest depths or highest heights, and cover the widest expanse. This is the love that you recieved in your heart; function with it!
