The love of Christ

That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend … what is the width and length and depth and height – to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge.
Ephesians 3:17-19.

The love of Christ
However vast man’s knowledge may be, one thing surpasses all else. The Bible tells us what it is: knowing the love of Christ. It is not theoretical, abstract knowledge: it depends on the place that Jesus has in our thoughts and affections. And it has visible consequences in our life.

Christ’s love differs from human love. To be maintained and to develop, the latter needs a response from another person, whereas Jesus Christ has revealed love without seeking anything in return, simply because the divine nature is love in itself for the good of mankind.

The love of Christ signifies the Son of God, the Creator, coming to earth, assuming human form so as to approach His creatures, serve them and speak of God’s love towards them.

The love of Christ is Jesus in His relationship with people, sensing the sufferings of the unfortunate, full of compassion towards those who weep, gentle towards children and gracious towards those who repent.

The love of Christ was finally expressed sublimely at the cross. There neither the contempt, the cruelty and hatred of men, nor the prospect of having to undergo God’s wrath because of sins that He bore without having committed them were powerful enough to be an obstacle to His love.

It was truly inimitable love. Yet the love of God has been poured out in the heart of the believer (cf. Romans 5:5), making him capable of loving as He did.

Today’s reading: Isaiah 22:1-25 · Acts 27:14-26

Open Heavens

by Pastor E.A Adeboye

UNCOVERING EVIL

The presence of the supernatural power of God in a church can take that church beyond limits.
It can also uproot the presence of evil in the midst of Gods children. In Acts 5, a couple were uprooted through this. If we are going to sanitise the church, we need the Holy Spirit. Just as we need Him to heal, save...More
APPLY THE KEY

by Pastor E.A Adeboye

APPLY THE KEY

Every blessing worth its salt requires a key without which the seeker cannot access it. While some people have never experienced open doors, others once did, but the doors hitherto opened to them have been shut. In 1 Samuel 16:14, the door which was once opened to Saul was shut. That good door which opened to...More

NEW LIFE IN JESUS 2

As a born-again Christian, you need to understand and live by the nature of the new creature that you are. This is the key to your victory in this world. One character of your new nature is revealed in Galatians 5:25:
“And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections...More
READY TO OCCUPY?
Open Heavens
for Thursday, October 16, 2014
by Pastor E.A Adeboye

READY TO OCCUPY?

No tree can grow except on the root from which it sprang. In the gospels, we see the personal life of our Lord laid bare for us. He spoke frequently of His relationship with the Father, of the motives guiding Him, and His consciousness of the power of the Spirit at work in Him. Jesus, as man, subordinated Himself and...More
