There's a lot of talk about the love of Christ, at church, in Bible study groups, in sermons and messages, and even on Facebook. But how much do we truly understand and comprehend God's love? In Ephesians 3:17-19, Paul writes about being rooted and grounded in love and having the strength and power to understand God's love for us. I like how Paul helps us better understand God's love by breaking it down into the tangible components of breadth, length, height and depth. God's love is complete, and there is no place that it does not reach.
To help us grasp the completeness of God's love for us even better, fill in the blanks below, drawing on something you're familiar with so the phrase is meaningful to you. For example, here's one of my sentences: "God's love is deeper than the deepest sea wall I've ever scuba-dived on."
- God's love is wider than _______________.
- God's love is longer than _______________.
- God's love is higher than _______________.
- God's love is deeper than _______________.
What's one example of how you have experienced the deep, high, low and wide love of God? Tami
P.S. Last week I wrote about spiritual prayers for our Christian friends. If you're not quite sure how to go about doing that, read back through Ephesians 3:14-21 and take note of how Paul prays a complete prayer all about spiritual matters for the believers in Ephesus.
