God’s Love

And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.
Ephesians 3:18 (NLT)

“The Grand Canyon is not such a big hole!” Who would say something like that? A person who has never been there. Pictures don’t do it justice. Even though it is 277 miles long, 18 miles wide and over a mile deep it is hard to comprehend for someone who has never been there. Paul is saying the same thing about God’s love. How do we get our heads around it? What if we know very little about feeling loved? What if we have a hard time believing we are lovable? We have never been there so how big a deal can it really be? That is why Paul prayed for the Ephesians. He prayed that they could have God’s power to understand how massive God’s love really is. And truthfully, the only way you will comprehend the vastness of it is to visit it. The word that Paul uses for “understand or comprehend” means to grab a hold of it really tight. Paul is asking us to come to this Grand Canyon of God’s love and soak it in. Walk around. See it, smell it, hear it, know it. And the best way is to do that is with a guide. Today, ask the Holy Spirit to help you on this quest. Ask Him to help you comprehend how wide, how long, how high and how deep the Holy Father’s love for you really is.

Father, please give me the power to understand how wide, how long, how high, and how deep Your love really is.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
