Fullness of God



Fullness of God. God who is all powerful, all knowing, present everywhere, existed before time, has no beginning, completely just and sinless (and the list goes on) grants His children the ability to understand His width, length, depth, and height!

14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Ephesians 3:14-21, NKJV



Fullness of God


To know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now there is a goal which we all need to pursue, day and night, for the rest of our lives. Just what do we need to do to know the love of Christ and to be filled with all His fullness?



As noted in the last two devotions from 1 Corinthians 2, only true believers (that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith) can ever attain to this goal, and even they are not able to do it by their own power, but rather through the power of God. It is God who grants them the strength through His Spirit in their inner man to be filled with all the His fullness.



Look at how Paul, in this passage, describes the fullness of God. . . . may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height . . . . Just think about what Paul is saying. God who is all powerful, all knowing, present everywhere, existed before time, has no beginning, completely just and sinless (and the list goes on) grants His children the ability to understand His width, length, depth, and height! The true believer, therefore, continues to grow in faith his entire life, growing more and more like Christ until they go to live with Him forever.



Can God do that? Can He really grant that knowledge to us? Look at verse 20. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, . . . . Is it any wonder that there exists such a wide gulf between believers and non-believers?



Are you on a fast track, trying to keep up with the world and the things of the world? Are you a true Christian? If so, you are traveling the wrong road!


God, who loves us with an unsurpassable love, is able to do more for us that we can ever even comprehend. How we tend to limit His help due to our own unbelief!



Pray today that God will use you in whatever walk of life He has put you. Pray, too, that your first priority (and only priority) in life would be to grow in the likeness of Christ until you attain all of God's fullness.
