Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 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. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. ”Ephesians 3:17-19 NLT
Have you let Christ make His home in your heart? He wants to dine with you at His table. He longs to show you how much He loves you. His love is so great that we cannot comprehend its fullness. The glory in this is that He chooses to love us and keep loving us. His love is incomprehensible and indescribable, yet He imparts it to us. He wants to fill your heart with His love and help you experience life through His heart. Accept His love. He isn't waiting for you to get your life together. He wants you to let Him put your life back together. You can't earn His love. None of us can! Simply receive it and watch how it will transform you. There is an old song that says "Could we with ink the ocean fill and were the skies with parchment made. Were every stalk on earth a quill and every man a scribe by trade. To write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky. O, love of God, how rich and pure. How measureless and strong. It shall forevermore endure. The saints and angels song."
I remember reading a footnote at the bottom of this song in the Church Hymnal that said this verse was found on the wall of an asylum a man said to have been demented. If that is demented, then let me go insane.
