"That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God." Ephesians 3:17-19
IN JESUS TODAY!
Do we understand how deep his love is for us? How intense the love of Jesus is for you and I? Can we comprehend this? We are saved because of his love, we are forgiven because of his love, we are healed because of his love, you and I are family because of his love, and like his love, these benefits go on and on, never stopping! As Paul has said, "But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world." Galatians 6:14 We glory in Jesus and his cross because his love and sacrifice has brought us all together in love at the cross of his crucifixion. His love for us is so deep and intense that he has brought us all together at the foot of the cross to be united as one family called Christians. We are Christians because of Jesus' love for us! We glory in the cross of Jesus, rightly so, for we shall not glory in another, but we also glory in this work of Jesus that has united us as one family in love under his headship, as our Father! His love for us is forever a sacrifice, forever a gift, and forever a calling for us to come together in love. The cross of Jesus is our meeting place, beneath this umbrella of love we are united with Jesus and with each other, his blood seals us together as one.
Our love for him, and our love for each other, our brothers, and sisters, and children alike, all together, we are one in his love! Beneath the cross of Jesus our family meets to praise our God and King forever! Jesus, the one who loves us ALL! He is risen and we all gather to celebrate his awesome love for us!
