To know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
All humans have known love-some in great measures, others in lesser. But could there be a love that passes human understanding? A love that goes beyond what even the most intelligent person can explain? A love that is not just known but passes the sense and theologies of mankind???
Let’s for a moment try and imagine the Lord, sitting on His throne, spread over kilometres and kilometres of space. This Lord, so magnificent in being wants to now display His love that is beyond the expanses of His majestic universe. So marvellous are the heavens in which He dwells, so fascinating, so astounding; and He desires to lavish all of His goodness and LOVE on this creation of His called ‘mankind.’ He decided that He was going to send His most cherished, most precious, most glorious Son-Jesus Christ to BECOME man and pay the sacrifice and quench the thirst of wrath so that His love could freely flow and overwhelm each one of us, who He has called by our names.
Many times, we are guilty of asking the Lord to prove that He loves us, to show up and display His goodness in our lives, to speak up and tells us how much we mean to Him. But He went beyond all of this already. We ask Him in time, but He did it before time so that it could be valid in time and last even beyond time. Can man then understand this unfathomable love???
This love of Christ is a love that needs to be experienced and not just known. A love that was showered on you before you were even conceived, a love that was poured out for you on the Cross of Calvary, a love that continues to surround you even in your tomorrows!
