The Immeasurable Love and Grace of God

Sunrise at Daytona Beach 2012

“17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. 20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” Ephesians 3:17-21

Theologians and commentators are not sure what the reference to the measurements mean. I have always thought that to mean to know the love of God to these far-reaching boundaries. It could mean that. However, Paul says, “…and height, and to know the love of God.” It almost seems to say that we want the ability with all saints to apprehend or grasp the breadth etc., as well as the love of God.

Paul begins this chapter with the revelation of God’s grace. I propose that this comprehension is the grand scale of God’s grace. With Christ—the Anointed one and His anointing dwelling in our hearts by faith, and being like a tree planted with deep roots of love for God and one another—we should begin together with all the believers to comprehend the immense size of God’s grace towards mankind.

This is power that is in us, the fullness of God, will do far above what we can even imagine. It means also that we cannot confine God to a square box measurable in any way. To know God is to take the limits of any measurement off because we can’t even think how big it is. If we say it’s 100X100X100X100, it’s too small. Any number will be too small.

The grace of God is bigger than anything we can imagine or think. The love of God passeth knowledge. It’s so big we can only know that we don’t know how big it is. The more you know, the more you know there is to know. And we are filled with this fullness and are able to do what He has asked us to do, according to the dynamite power that God has already placed in us. PTL.
