How Wide….

how long

and high

and deep

is the love of Christ?how-wide-and-long-2

Paul  prayed to God, asking that the Ephesians – and us – would know this love.

And be filled with this love.

So we can be strengthened with the power of the Holy Spirit who lives inside of us.

For this reason, Paul knelt down before his Heavenly Father to pray.

As we kneel before him now –

Dear Father, we thank you for how wide and long and high and deep Christ’s love is for us. 

We know it.

We feel it.

As we quickly rush into the Christmas holiday, please help us remember what we’re celebrating – Jesus’ birth.  And also help us remember his death and resurrection.  His sacrifice on the cross for us is why we can talk with you right now.

Thank you for the gift of your son, Abba Father.  It is in his name we pray to you today.  Amen.
