To Know God’s Power, Know God’s Love

I love the presentation Paul makes in Ephesians 3:18 of the four-dimensional love of God…

And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is… (NLT)

I love that these four dimensions are the dimensions of the cross as it points in four directions. But what I love more is the fact that Paul makes a connection between understanding God’s love and understanding His power! He goes on to say why he wishes we could know God’s love…

THEN you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God. (NLT)

So here’s the equation: discover how much God loves you equals experiencing the fullness of God’s power in your life.

He didn’t say discover your talents or climb the corporate ladder to experience God’s power. He didn’t even command us to work ourselves into an emotional frenzy to have God’s power. Just understand how much He loves you.

Understanding His love for us is freeing, it’s empowering in a way nothing else is. Do you have any idea just how much God loves you today?

  1. As I read your post, I could not help but think of my own reflections on John 1 this morning, "Jesus is".

    Jesus is the Word of God. He is God's power and wisdom. To know the love of Jesus is to know the glory and power of God.

  2. "Understanding His love for us is freeing, it’s empowering in a way nothing else is."

    Amen! It is indeed! :)

  3. And knowing God's power, we should tremble.

    For fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

    But loving our Lord pleases Him

    Indeed, he commands it.

    Words are very uncertain vehicles to describe the living God,so for an individual to attempt
    to share the joy of a relationship,would take a lifetime of experience,combined with every living
    creature who knows God,to begin to reveal the friendship between his/her Maker & the creature.
    New words would have to be invented,new expressions created,new feelings manufactured,new
    avenues of thought,new pictures painted to begin to reveal the Beauty of the One Altogether Lovely
    the Chief among ten thousands to our soul. carl..the very least of His children
