Ephesians 3:16-19 Extraordinary Power of Love


Ephesians 3:16-19 Extraordinary Power of Love

Ephesians 3:16-19 I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

A very Trinitarian prayer here, centered on the extraordinary power of love! That love flows from and is rooted in the nature and person of the full Trinity. St Paul is asking the Father through the Spirit that we humans be rooted and grounded ever more deeply in love as the perfect human-divine Son radiates perfect Godlove outward through us from our inner depths. That’s the meaning and purpose of each of our lives! Our spiritual growth is a lifelong process of moving always toward a greater yieldedness to that power of love, which itself is God. Perhaps as we ponder such grand thoughts, we may better understand and rejoice in who we are, whose we are, and what is the meaning of our lives.
