Understanding how much we are loved

“I pray that you … may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ and to know this love….” Ephesians 3:17-19

In verses 16-19 Paul is telling the Ephesians Christians that he is praying for them to know how much they are loved. Presumably Paul would have told them this when he was with them yet he obviously felt that they hadn’t really taken it in. So he not only tells them but prays that God would give them the power to understand that they are loved.

Do you realize how much God loves you?

On the cross Jesus said, “My God, my God why have you forsaken me?”(Mark 15:34). God forsook Jesus so that He would never have to forsake us. That really is amazing love. So every time we partake in communion we are reminded how much we are loved. Loved so much God gave His only Son.

The “Message” Bible puts Paul’s prayer like this, that “you’ll be able to take in with all Christians the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love.” John also wanted his readers to know how much they are loved, he wrote “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us.” (1 John 3:1) Christ’s love is extravagant and lavish. From a human perspective we have never been loved like this and it is overwhelming to be so totally loved. But let us take God at His word and open our hearts to receive His love.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
