Indescribable Love

“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–” Eph 3:17-19 (NIV)

Is it possible to comprehend the love of Christ? Think about the person in your life who you feel currently loves you more than anyone else on the planet. Now that’s a barge overflowing with love! However, that amount does not¬†even come¬†close to comparing to the love of Christ.

Interestingly, Paul clarifies that for a believer to grasp the love of Christ requires God’s power. You must have the power of God to live the Christian life. You must also employ God’s power to be able to grasp the width, length, height, and depth of Christ’s love.

  • “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 (NIV)
  • “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 (NIV)
  • “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” 1 John 3:1 (NIV)

Have you come to know the love of Christ by experience? Are you allowing His love for you to impact how you treat others?

Pursuing God,
