Powerful Love

"And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deeply love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never full understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God" (Ephesians 3:18-19).

This boggles my mind - that people, myself included at times, can't comprehend the love that Christ has hown us. If people could only understand how real it was...and still is. How He loved us, even as we were (or are) still sinners. Paul is saying here that if we could first understand that we might then experience that love, and that then we would be filled with a power that comes because of that love.

If you truly thought about or tried to more fully understand the depth of His love, how would that empower you to live differently? Would you be more compassionate, more patient, more sensititive, more understanding, or even a better friend, husband, or wife? Let His love be power that guides your life today!
