For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, 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 fullness of God.
Paul's prayer for the Ephesians focuses on God's abundant love for his creation. His love is there, has always been there, yesterday today and tomorrow. What these verses tell me today is that God's love for me is greater than anything I can readily and easily understand. The closer I draw to God, the more I will experience this love.
Holy Lord, I do feel your love for me, but sometimes I doubt that love because I know how undeserving I am. Help me, Jesus, to live in your love, every minute of every day. I am yours. Amen
