Knowing Real love!


We have talked about how God is love


We have talked about how God’s love for us is an everlasting love


We have talked about how God adores us


But what happens when that love is put to the test?



Ephesians 3:14-20

When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, 15 the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.


Paul is in prison, he is suffering and he wants the Body of Christ to not lose hope


16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.



Too often we don’t believe fully the love of God for us that sustains us,


How do I know? Let’s look at the next verse


18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.


we can walk through times of doubt, times of grief, times of fear, times of confusion and you know He is still there loving and adoring you


19 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.


God’s power, His anointing, His authority is not based on our perfection but based on an understanding of His great love for us…

promised in John 10:10 “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”


We are made complete in life and power…real life and real power because we have come through it all knowing we are loved!
