Love Surpasses Knowledge

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Ephesians chapter 3:

16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being,

17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,

18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,

19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,

We can read, study, dissect, and analyze every word in Scripture but Love in its fullness cannot be found in such a manner.  FATHER’S Divine Intent of Love is beyond our ability to express in words.  The Scripture is full of the acts of Love but Love is not limited to those acts so we must not be satisfied and stop there.  We must proceed to the source of that Love in order to grasp the breadth and length and height and depth.

FATHER has glorious riches which will strengthen us with power through HIS SPIRIT.  Those glorious riches reside in our inner being, not in some physical safe place.  We enter into the depths of our spirit by separating ourselves from the world’s noise and influence and minister unto FATHER.

In Ephesians chapter 5:

1 Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children

2 and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Consider that Jesus is providing the sweet smelling, acceptable savor to FATHER as a sacrifice on our behalf.  Consider Jesus being in our midst as we enter before FATHER in the Holy of Holies.  It is a place of absolute reverence and we should not take it lightly as we go before the Throne.  This is where the source of all pure Love resides and as we spend more time with FATHER, our grasp of Love increases.  Simply by being in the presence of Love we become Love to a greater degree and we see its outworking as we begin to see people in a different light.  Judgment dissipates as the eyes of grace and mercy are opened.

Every person has a unique set of circumstances that have brought them to where they are at now.  Only FATHER knows what their needs are and HE will minister to them from Love in order to draw them toward HIM.  Some will reject HIS call but HIS Love is not dissuaded.  We may have knowledge of their situation but at best it is only partial knowledge.  Instead of analyzing someone’s needs we should be tapping into HIS power that is at work in us.  How better to be a messenger of Love than to walk according to HIS power and might.

HIS Love is able to do more than can ask or imagine.  How wonderful is that?  As we become led by THE SPIRIT to a greater degree, we will comprehend Love surpassing knowledge.  Keep pressing in!
