Empowered With Inner Strength!
…that according to the riches of His glory He may grant you to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith that you being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.--------Ephesians 3:16-19
This is part of the Apostle Paul’s prayer for the Christians in Ephesus. When we become part of God’s family, which was provided through the death and resurrection of His ONE and ONLY Son, Jesus Christ, we receive the power of His Spirit, which indwells us, and through His Spirit we are given INNER STRENGTH. And God’s Son, through the presence of the HOLY SPIRIT, indwells us, through FAITH, that we might be ROOTED and GROUNDED in His love.
Then we will have strength to KNOW the length, width, height, and depth of God’s GREAT LOVE and to KNOW of the LOVE of Christ that SURPASSES knowledge, in order to be filled with ALL the fullness of God. And not only to KNOW it, but to EXPERIENCE His love in our INNER BEING.
This is what the Father wants for ALL of His Children. He want us to EXPERIENCE His GREAT LOVE and to have an intimate relationship with Him, because He is our Spiritual Daddy, or Abba Father and we need to KNOW just how long, wide, high and deep His love is for us. We can only have this knowledge through FAITH in Him.
He wants us to KNOW of and EXPERIENCE the LOVE of Christ, His Son, which is beyond our comprehension, because of His SACRIFICE for the crown of God’s creation, mankind, that we may be filled with ALL the fullness of God. It was the desire of Paul that the Christians in Ephesus EXPERIENCE God’s love and to KNOW Him and His Son with a deep abiding FAITH, that would give them INNER STRENGTH, to be able to not just EXPERIENCE His GREAT LOVE, but to be filled with ALL the fullness of God. And that is what the Father wants for His Children.
If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to Christ, then you are not part of God’s family and He is not your Spiritual Daddy. And you are not EXPERIENCING His GREAT LOVE, or KNOWING how GREAT IT really is. You NOW have the opportunity to change your relationship with Him, from Him being your JUDGE to being your Spiritual Daddy, by: CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and EXPERIENCE His GREAT LOVE and be EMPOWERED with INNER STRENGTH. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting!!!
