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 ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. (Ephesians 3:17-19 KJV)
Christ dwells in this girl's heart by faith. That wonderful journey began 40 years ago. As far as being rooted and grounded in love she still has much work to do. Love is a difficult life to live. People, fallen, broken people, are who we have to love. And we ourselves are fallen, broken people.
There is a breadth, length, depth and height to God's love. It's not one dimensional. Two friends were discussing being fallen and broken. One told the other that God loved us so much he couldn't love us more or less, whether we followed him closely or not at all. What security that height and depth give, we just can't wriggle out of it.
If we want to be filled with all the fulness of God, we've got to know the love of Christ. Our sinful hearts and minds need the fulness of God to wash them clean. So we need to watch how Christ loved. The lady of the evening He showed grace to. The man with a Legion of demons within him He gave peace to his heart, soul and mind.
And "There is no greater love than a man lay down His life for His friends." Jesus knelt down and washed the disciples' dirty feet. Then He explained to them His laying down His life for them had depth and meaning beyond the surface. The wine and the bread they shared showed them His blood and his body which would be shed and broken to cleanse them and heal the hurts this life brings.
If we can know Christ and his love we'll by nature love people. Thank you Lord that You showed us in living color your love. Because of Your love You sacrificed for us. Help us be willing to give ourselves to others. We need to be full of God to have wisdom, be in our right minds and live a life that means something in others.
in the video the gentleman talked about how much it means to love this world of people around us. This "universal love" we know as Jesus' love.
