Roots and foundation in love

Ephesians 3:16-19

Good News Translation (GNT)

I ask God from the wealth of his glory to give you power through his Spirit to be strong in your inner selves, and I pray that Christ will make his home in your hearts through faith. I pray that you may have your roots and foundation in love, so that you, together with all God’s people, may have the power to understand how broad and long, how high and deep, is Christ’s love. Yes, may you come to know his love—although it can never be fully known—and so be completely filled with the very nature of God.

  1. What a great photo. It shows the root of love, but also how “it can never be fully known.” God’s love can seem difficult, impossible to trace, and hard to accept, but all we need to do is believe that “Jesus loves me, this I know for the Bible tells me so.” So simple. So clear. So overwhelming. Thank you for this amazing reminder.

    I love your work and you in Christ!!!

  2. Hi alienhippy I like that you used roots to show that God’s Love is not shallow like worldly or fleshy love, below is a wonderful Chapter about God’s Love It is not refering to worldly or fleshy love and as you can see we are perfected in His Love when we are in Christ Jesus and Born again of God’s seed – 1John 3:1-11 ( 9 )

    1 John 4 ( 16 – 18 ) And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is Love; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casteth out fear, because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love.

    • Dear alienhippy because like me you have a very analytical mind which is one of the blessings of being Dyslectic, I want to show you something that if you ponder on it and ask Jesus for His wisdom in understanding His Truth with these verses, you will see why I posted them.

      Ephesians 3:16-19 That he would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in Love, May be able to comprehend with all Saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the Love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God – King James Version (KJV)

      1 John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.

      Christian Love Anne,
