Filled with the Fullness of God


From Pastor’s Desk:

…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. – Ephesians 3:17-19 NKJV

***

To be filled with all the fullness of God, to comprehend the width, length, depth, and height of the love of Christ, there is that short, yet essential, phrase, “rooted and grounded in love” that is the qualifier.

Without love we will never advance to the place where we can know the love of Christ which passes knowledge. How can we know all the fullness of God without knowing the love of Christ? One must have Christ dwelling in the heart through faith to experience that. That’s not a human attribute, but spiritual!

Conceding that we will never, in this life, be able to know the fullness of God, it is a wonderful, exciting journey to the end, at which time, we will know Him even as we are known (1 Cor. 13:12). Sunset over Mountain Range
