May you experience the love of Christ
"May you experience the love of Christ, which surpasses knowledge!" Ephesians 3:19
Here is a glorious paradox full of sweetness! It delights me to think I am called to experience that which cannot be known. The love of Christ is . . .
so high—that I cannot scale it;
so deep—that I cannot fathom it;
so broad—that I cannot traverse it;
so long—that I cannot measure it.
It exceeds my capacity to apprehend—yes, it "surpasses knowledge."
Yet though I cannot know it fully, I may know something of it. I may apprehend and enjoy something . . .
of its freeness,
of its fullness,
of its tenderness,
of its strength,
of its constancy.
O Lord, direct my heart into Your love in Christ Jesus—give me a fuller enjoyment of it, and let me live under its power. May the love of Christ constrain me to yield myself unreservedly to Your service, and to live to Your glory.
Surely it is but little that a vessel so narrow in capacity as I am, can hold of Your love and of Yourself—but according to the prayer of the apostle, I would ask to be "filled with all the fullness of God."
"Jesus, Your boundless love to me
No thought can reach, no tongue declare;
O knit my thankful heart to Thee,
And reign without a rival there!"
