Ephesians 3:19 - Experiencing the Love of Christ and the Fullness of God.

Ephesians 3:19 (NLT) 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 3:19 (AMP) [That you may really 
come] to know [practically, through experience for 
yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere 
knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled 
[through all your being] unto all the fullness of God 
[may have the richest measure of the divine 
Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded 
with God Himself]!  


To Know The Love Of Christ: Not the love 
believers have for Christ, but the love of and from 
Christ that He places in their hearts before they 
can truly and fully love Him or anyone else 
(Rom. 5:5). [MacArthur Daily Bible 2003] 

Which passes knowledge: Knowledge of 
Christ's love is far beyond the capability of human 
reason and experience. It is only known by those 
who are God's children (Phil. 4:7.). [MacArthur 
Daily Bible 2003] 

Filled with all the fullness of God: To be 
so strong spiritually, so compelled by divine 
love, that one is totally dominated by the Lord 
with nothing left of self. Human comprehension of 
the fullness of God is impossible, because even 
the most spiritual and wise believer cannot 
completely grasp the full extent of God's attributes 
and characteristics His power, majesty, wisdom, 
love, mercy, patience, kindness, and everything He 
is and does. But believers can experience the 
greatness of God in their lives as a result of total 
devotion to Him. Note the fullness of God, here; the 
fullness of Christ in 4:13; and the fullness of the 
Spirit in 5:18). [MacArthur Daily Bible 2003] 


   In the 1980s, I was a FedEx courier, 
and I would listen to cassettes in my truck as I 
drove. One of my favorite groups is Take 6, and 
during the Christmas season I would play their He 
is Christmas cassette. I didn't have a 
relationship with Jesus at the time. 
   One day while I was driving my van and 
listening to the cassette, "Sweet Little Jesus Boy" 
started to play. I sang along to the lyrics as I 
always did, but this time, as I sang the words 
about Jesus being born to save me, tears started 
streaming down my cheeks. I felt a rush of love that I 
never knew existed. I was driving in the middle of 
nowhere, delivering packages, and a song that I'd 
sung so many times before suddenly affected me in 
the most wonderful and unexpected way. 
   That day was the beginning of the 
greatest love relationship of my life - my 
relationship with Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. My 
blinded eyes were opened to the true miracle and 
reason for the birth of the sweet Little Jesus Boy. 
Whenever I think back on that thrilling life-changing 
event, I am reminded of the amazing "width and 
length and depth and height" of love that Jesus has 
for all of us. He wants to draw us to His love 
and let us know He is our loving Savior who gave 
His life to save me and you! by Tracy Eldridge 
   Faith Step: This season think back to the 
time Jesus opened your eyes and heart to the 
realization of who He is and the love He has for you. 
Then remember the reason for the season - Jesus 
was born to save us! [Mornings With Jesus 2020

   Truth in Christ and through Christ is 
measureless. The student of Scripture looks, as it were, 
into a fountain that deepens and broadens as he 
gazes into its depths. Not in this life shall we 
comprehend the mystery of God's love in giving His Son 
to be the propitiation for our sins. The work 
of our Redeemer on this earth is and ever will 
be a subject that will put to the stretch our 
highest imagination. Man may tax every mental power 
in the endeavor to fathom this mystery, but his 
mind will become faint and weary. The most 
diligent searcher will see before him a boundless, 
shoreless sea.  
   The truth as it is in Jesus can be 
experienced, but never explained. Its height and breadth 
and depth pass our knowledge. We may task our 
imagination to the utmost, and then we shall see only 
dimply the outlines of a love that is 
unexplainable, that is as high as heaven, but that stooped 
to the earth to stamp the image of God on all 
   Yet it is possible for us to see all that 
we can bear of the divine compassion. This is 
unfolded to the humble, contrite soul. We shall 
understand God's compassion just in proportion as we 
appreciate His sacrifice for us. As we search the word 
of God in humility of heart, the grand theme of 
redemption will open to our research. It will increase 
in brightness as we behold it, and as we aspire 
to grasp it, its height and depth will ever 
   Our life is to be bound up with the life 
of Christ; we are to draw constantly from Him, 
partaking of Him, the living Bread that came down from 
heaven, drawing from a fountain ever fresh, ever 
giving forth its abundant treasures. If we keep the 
Lord ever before us, allowing our hearts to go 
out in thanksgiving and praise to Him, we shall 
have a continual freshness in our religious life. 
Our prayers will take the form of a conversation 
with God as we would talk with a friend. He will 
speak His mysteries to us personally. Often there 
will come to us a sweet joyful sense of the 
presence of Jesus. Often our hearts will burn within 
us as He draws nigh to commune with us as He 
did with Enoch. When this is in truth the 
experience of the Christian, there is seen in his life 
a simplicity, a humility, meekness, and 
lowliness of heart, that show to all with whom he 
associates that he has been with Jesus and learned of 
Him.  COL128-130 

   What love, what matchless love, that, 
sinners and aliens as we are, we may be brought back 
to God and adopted into His family! We may 
address Him by the endearing name, "Our Father," 
which is a sign of our affection for Him and a 
pledge of His tender regard and relationship to us. 
And the Son of God, beholding the heirs of 
grace, "is not ashamed to call them brethren." They 
have even a more sacred relationship to God than 
have the angels who have never fallen.  
   All the paternal love which has come down 
from generation to generation through the channel 
of human hearts, all the springs of tenderness 
which have opened in the souls of men, are but as 
a tiny rill to the boundless ocean, when 
compared with the infinite, exhaustless love of God. 
Tongue cannot utter it; pen cannot portray it. You 
may meditate upon it every day of your life; you 
may search the Scriptures diligently in order to 
understand it; you may summon every power and 
capability that God has given you, in the endeavor to 
comprehend the love and compassion of the heavenly 
Father; and yet there is an infinity beyond.  
   In all His children God beholds the image 
of His only-begotten Son. He looks upon them 
with a love greater than any language can 
express. He enfolds them in the arms of His love. The 
Lord rejoices over His people. ML289
