Comprehending His love

Download Today's Audio☞ http://bit.ly/aud2618
Ephesians 3:17-19 (NET) that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, so that, because you have been rooted and grounded in love, you may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and thus to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.
When Dara was a little boy, he was too young to truly understand what love meant. He felt his parents loved him when they bought him nice things and hated him when they disciplined him. It took a level of growth and maturity for Dara to realize that even the times his father disciplined him, it was born out of genuine love.

He saw the way other children who were not disciplined turned out, and he doubted whether their parents truly loved them the way his parents loved him.

Because he was loved as a little child, he also could love his children easily. It is a true saying that: those who have never experienced love would have a hard time expressing love.

From today's scripture, we can see that the prerequisite for being filled with the fullness of God is a comprehension (or an understanding) of His love. One of the fruits this understanding produces is love for God, and this love would manifest in obedience to Him (See John 14:15, 1John 2:3-5, John 14:21-24). 1 John 4:19 says "we love Him because he first loved us".

Our comprehension of the depth of love the Lord has for us would produce a response of love in us towards Him and towards other people He loves. This love will manifest in the way we treat our friends, neighbors, and even our enemies. For indeed, we would remember that while we were still enemies of God, Christ loved us and gave his life for us.

Understanding the Love the Lord has for us is the key that opens up our hearts to deeper fellowship with Him because of trust and faith in Him. It is a true saying that: the deeper you trust a person, the deeper your fellowship would be with that person.

Go into today thanking the Lord for the great love with which he has loved you. Ask that the eyes of your understanding may be enlightened so you may comprehend His love more and as a result, your capacity to be filled with His presence and power would be enlarged.
 
Confession: I live a life that demonstrates God's love. My life is filled with the fullness of God, In Jesus' name.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
