AS CHRISTIANS, WE ARE ADMONISHED THE KNOW HOW MUCH CHRIST LOVED US. YOU SEE, KNOWING HOW WIDE AND LONG AND HIGH AND DEEP IS THE LOVE OF CHRIST IS THE ONLY WAY FOR US TO BE FILLED TO THE MEASURE OF ALL THE FULLNESS OF GOD.
(Eph 3:17b-19) “And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
THE MORE YOU KNOW YOU ARE LOVED, THE MORE YOU EXPERIENCE THAT LOVE AND THE MORE YOU EXPERIENCE THAT LOVE, THE MORE YOU WILL KNOW HOW TO LOVE. THIS IS THE REASON WHY WE ARE ADMONISHED TO KNOW FIRST, HOW MUCH CHRIST LOVED US.
CHRIST LOVE EMPOWERS US TO LOVE. AND FOR THIS REASON, THE LORD’S COMMAND TO LOVE AS HE LOVED US CAN NOW BE REALIZED.
ALTHOUGH WE ARE NOT UNDER LAW (OLD COVENANT), BUT UNDER GRACE (NEW COVENANT), WE STILL UPHOLD THE LAW, BECAUSE LOVE IS THE FULFILLMENT OF THE LAW.
(Rom. 13:10b)) “Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law”
