Ephesians 3:18-19

18 I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Questions to consider:
  • Who are all the saints to whom the author refers?
  • How do you understand the concept of something that "surpasses knowledge"?
  • What might it mean to be filled with all the fullness of God?
Possibilities for prayer:

This portion of Ephesians 3 is a prayer in itself: the author desires for us to comprehend the breadth, height, length and depth of God's love, amongst other things. In this season, the song "How He Loves" has been a powerful and meaningful one for our church community, as we go through the book of Ephesians. Its message is quite simple, really-- just attempting to convey the way that God loves us.

Let's pray along with the author of Ephesians that we might begin to even marginally comprehend the various immeasurable measurements of the way in which God loves us.
