18-20 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. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
It is important to know God’s heart . His love is unconditional. All of us must know that the Love of Christ is immeasurable which surpasses all knowledge that you may be filled with the fullness of God daily. God is also able to do exceedingly abundantly above all our asking or imagination only according to the power of the Holy spirit that works in us throughout all generations. Eph 3:18-20.
Jesus set an example for us to preach the Kingdom of His love to areas outside our boundaries. It is to be our life mission and this is why we are in this world to set a standard of His kingdom that men’s spirit be awakened to the truth that they may acknowledge Jesus Christ as their Saviour and be set free. Luke 4.43. So do focus on your life mission as your priority. Jesus saves and redeems us that we might do likewise to the perishing and those who know God religiously but not relationally.
God wants us to have a loving relationship with Him that we might give unconditional love the way He gave us. All of us come to Jesus Christ in a sinful state and He has patiently wait for our transformation progressively and we shall do likewise. Many of us including myself is guilty of this and we keep failing all the time. Its time for us to restrain and have self control that all may come into the Kingdom.
Sometimes we think we are perfect but when we are tested, we are far from perfect. We need to be rooted and grounded in His word so that our eyes be opened to see His unfailing, abounding, steadfast and unconditional love. Only then can we offer unconditional love to rebellious teens.
Like Apostle Paul, i bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ from whom the whole family of Christ in heaven and earth is named that He would grant us the riches of His glory to be strengthened with might through the Spirit in our inner man. Eph 3:16. We must be grounded in His word and allow it to be impregnated in our hearts before we can be rooted and grounded in love to help othera with the same unconditional love. Though we cannot be perfect, this should not be an excuse to ban others from our sight when the going gets tough. The opportunity given to us must be the same opportunity given to others through us. We are created in His image. Let us not allow original sin and wrong view of our God as a result of our past woundedness cause us to react against those with rebellious nature.
Loving them is the key. Job knows God only religiously. God considered him righteous but allowed him to go through pain to show him His nature of relationship through unconditional love. Through this story, his religious friends who attribute Job’s sufferings to sin were also rebuked for judging Job unrighteously. How many times have we judged people wrongly due to our perceptions caused by the wounded child in us that needs to be delivered. In this coming Friday/Ssaturday workshop we will address the inner wounded child issues that have robbed us of good relationships with people especially with our loved ones. Hope to see you. God bless!
