For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21
God’s amazing creation speaks of His awesome and boundless being. Everything He has created including Heavens, the earth, and all the galaxies are expansive and beyond our human understanding. Scientists continue to discover His creation using technology and instrumentation to understand what He has put in place. One person or one scientist is not capable of understanding everything. They cannot embark on such a huge project alone, but many people over centuries have contributed to the discovery and understanding of God’s amazing creation and the laws that He has put in place.
Similarly, when we meditate on God’s love, we find that His love is vast and cannot be comprehended entirely; His love has width, length, depth, and height. The love of God is boundless and beyond the understanding of one person. His love is experienced by millions of His children over history, and we each get to have a revelation of who He is and what He intended through Jesus’ love, obedience, and sacrifice. It is this great love that Jesus commanded us to tell others about it and share the Good News of salvation! People need to know that there is a God in heaven who loves them and has made a way for freedom from death, darkness, and slavery to sin for every person on this earth!
Humanity is in desperate need of God’s love. As His children, we also are in desperate need of the love of the Lord to settle our hearts and keep us secure in an insecure world! That’s why our relationship with God has to have a continual intimacy. It is not because we are trying to be religious, but we are in need of God’s love to refill our hearts and to be rooted and grounded in His love. This allows us to go out to the world full of His love and not seek others’ approval or pat on the back to live a full and Godly life!
The Lord is calling us to meditate on His love and to rest in Him. This is a song that kept coming to my heart in the last few days. Feel free to use it in your time of worship and meditation.
