Paul’s prayer for the believers in Ephesians 3:18-19 “That you may be able to comprehend…what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.”
These verses expresses the heart of Paul for his fellow believers to understand the fullness, vastness and completeness of Christ’s love . The Apostle prays because only by divine intervention can our finite minds comprehend the great love that Christ gives. Such love surpasses human knowledge. John MacAuthur does a good contrast; human love lasts until it is offended. Christ love lasts despite every offense. Human love is for what it can get. Christ love is for what it can give. Paul knows that when the child of God grasp the magnitude of this truth it will result in deep gratitude manifested in a life yielded to the will and purpose of Christ born out of a deep sense of obligation. The book of Romans describe it as a living sacrifice which is our reasonable response to His love demonstrated through His mercies and grace. Being filled with all the fullness of God that is being under God’s complete control and emptied of self. These are critical elements for a victorious Christian life.
