…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 fullness of God. Ephesians 3:17-19
God’s love is total and reaches every corner of our experience…
God’s love is wide ~ it covers the breadth of our own experience, and it reaches out to the whole world.
God’s love is long ~ it continues the length of our lives.
God’s love is high ~ it rises to the heights of our celebration and elation.
God’s love is deep ~ it reaches to the depths of discouragement, despair, and even death.
As believers, we can be assured that no matter what happens to us, no matter where we are, we can never be separated from Christ’s presence and love (Romans 8:35-39). We have all the fullness of God available to us through faith and through prayer as we choose to daily live ~ for him.
