“So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.”
Christ’s victory has been won long ago and endures FOREVER. This is a redundancy because it is all that matters. Johnny and I had a conversation that was just of the Spirit and so so good that was like, “In Christ.” We can literally just keep repeating that. “In Christ,” I can serve my neighbour because it will ultimately glorify Him. In Christ I can love this man because God gave him to me to love and glorify and praise the Lord with and love the Lord in. In Christ I can love each and every human being no matter who they are or what they’ve done because I know Christ’s greatness is apparent in and through EVERYTHING and I can be expectant of that. In Christ I can love my friends because it is Christ alone that is my rock, my reason for life and saving, my Saviour, my best friend. He uses me that His will be done on earth, and may He use me only for His purposes.
It is so good how the Lord changes our hearts in short seconds. How we can be floating around in a human mindset and the Lord brings us to His Kingdomly place and gives us a new mind and fills us up with His Spirit and all we can think is, this is good, this is only going to be good. True joy comes from Him and Him alone and He uses us to spread that, to be the light in the world but firmly rooted in His perfect Love. We can be communicating in an earthly sense and then the Lord brings us to the same page and stance in His name and it’s all we must crave because He is all we need. Your will be done, Lord!
