"That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that yes might be filled with all the fullness of God" Ephesians 3:27-19
In a world filled with so much hate it becomes even more difficult to truly comprehend the love of Christ, as the ever increasing need of this understanding grows exponentially the problem exists within the heart, the writer tells us in this Ephesians passage, "to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge" . . . The love of Christ is beyond the realm of knowledge, it's not something you can study in a book or learn from the wealth of knowledge that exists in libraries and universities. The love of Christ is a matter of the heart !!!! Until we see Christ as He truly is with our heart, until we spend time in His presence pouring out our heart before Him, seeking to understand His heart. . . Until then we will never understand the breadth, length, depth nor height of Christ's love for us and the world around us; and until that moment, we will not be filled with the fullness of God in our lives.
We look at the world around us in puzzled bewilderment wondering what has happened to create this insane movement of hate and destruction . . . It's a matter of the heart . . . They do not know the love of Christ!!!!!! Until we show them who Christ really us, until they experience that life changing moment in time when He gives them a new heart, hate will continue to grow !!!! They need a new heart . . .
"A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statues, and he shall keep my judgements, and do them. Ezekiel 36:26-27
To Know the Love of Christ . . . Starts in the heart !!!!! We have a mission and it starts in our hearts !!!
