14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 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, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Oh, the Love of Christ. The love that Jesus has for His people is deeper, wider, and longer than any human love can ever achieve. The Lord loves His own so much, probably much more than they could ever imagine. Love like this is hard to comprehend; our Savior loves us so incredibly much. We praise Him for His great love!
Jesus loves us at all times. When we succeed He loves and when we fail He loves. The love of Christ is with us when the times are good and when the times are sorrowful. What a great love this is that Jesus would love sinners such as us.
Jesus’ love desires our ultimate best. He loves us enough to lead us to truth. Even when we would rather not hear the truth, Jesus gives what is best nonetheless. Christ’s love compels His people to growth and maturity. Living in Christlikeness is the best path to follow.
Christian, live in the truth that you are loved by Christ. Acknowledge Him and serve Him with trust on this day that He has made. May we cry out the words of the bygone hymn “A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord, A wonderful Savior to me.”
