“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—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” -Ephesians 3:17-19
When I think of God the Father’s special gift to us, I think of His plan of salvation. The Father was the one who came up with the idea. That’s why I often spend time worshiping Him in reverence and respect.
Other times in my prayers, I think about God the Son and His special gift to us of grace. Jesus is the one who followed through on the Father’s plan of salvation. And my response? Gratitude that He’s my Savior and obedience to Him as Lord.
When I dwell on the Holy Spirit and His gift of strength and encouragement of heart, I remember that he’s the one who gives us assurance and joy. That’s why I take care not to grieve, quench, or oppose Him.
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I am filled to the measure of all the fullness of God as I commune with each member of the Trinity. It’s a glorious way to experience a full communion with the Lord and thereby discover how wide, long, high, and deep is the love of Christ.
God desires to fill you to the brim with the fullness of His love. Although Ephesians 3:17-19 says that such love surpasses knowledge, we can still enjoy His love’s fullness as we enter into a complete and well-rounded communion with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Lord, thank You for wanting to fill me with the fullness of all of Your love. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit… I worship You.
