“God’s love shelters me — from far beyond the world we see.” Those words are from a song-poem I wrote many years ago and those words are still true today. Nothing in the wold that happens around me or to me can change my love for my Father God and my Lord Jesus Christ. They are the sole reason I exist, live and move. I cannot imagine living without having the rich knowledge of God abounding in me. To wake up and not know my Creator — to walk through this life with all its ups and downs and in-betweens — would just be a waste of time if not for my Savior Jesus Christ.
If you don’t yet know this kind of love; if you don’t have this kind of relationship with your God, I’m here to tell you that it’s available. Right now. Right where you live. Right where you are in your emotions and mental capacity. Right home inside of you! You can know the love of Christ that passes knowledge.
Ephesians 3:14-19 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.
Paul’s prayer is my prayer for you this day. Would you like to be “strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man?” Would you like Christ to “dwell in your heart by faith?” Do you want to know the 4-dimensional love of Christ that passes knowledge. Do you want to be “filled with all the fullness of God?”
Those are powerful words revealing powerful concepts. But know, my friend, that these words are reality. They are achievable, attainable right now in this world. That’s the love God has for you and all His children. To reveal Himself to each one of us individually is God’s golden heart. He wants in intimate relationship with each one of us and now is the time to begin.
Romans 10:9,10 If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.
For with the heart man believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Living in this world is tough. You never know what’s coming your way though we do our best to plan, avoid and pursue that which is good. But living in this world without knowing God and the Lord Jesus Christ is much worse. In that life there is no hope and you’ll never experience the joy that can be yours — regardless of any outside or internal conditions — when you are walking with God.
I encourage you to confess Jesus is Lord and believe God raised him from the dead. You shall be saved. You’ll start a spiritual walk that will grow day by day until you are just like our Lord Jesus in character and power. Jesus is the firstfruits from the dead — the first to be raised and receive his glorious body. Those who believe in him will be likewise transformed at his coming for us.
You are invited!
