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: discovering 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?
