|I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. 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.|
This verse is written by the Apostle Paul, wishing that the people he leads would experience “spiritual enlightenment” (extreme peace/joy and a strong sense that “all is well”) that can be gained by understanding and beginning to believe who Jesus is, what he’s like and how intimately he knows us and loves us.
I want you to know that this isn’t just a religious teaching I’ve heard about. It’s something I’ve experienced to a meaningful extent. If I was just writing about something I think is real but I haven’t experienced it, then I may lack credibility. But I have experienced it. And I want you (whoever you are reading this blog) to have it.
