How much does He love us?

It is so easy to read how much The Lord loves you. It's written everywhere in the Bible, people say it at church or in passing "Jesus loves you!", but it's different when you fully understand, feel, and know His love deeper. In Ephesians 3:17-19 Paul says, "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."

Knowing the love of Christ is more than just having head knowledge of it, it's truly knowing it in your heart and feeling a deeper sense of His love. You must be rooted and established in love to grasp this understanding.
It's life changing when you realize how much He truly loves us.

(I always use her music as an example because I love reading passages in the Bible that I've heard and sang from my heart and put it all together. And she's one of my faves...)

Read this passage today and ask the Lord to help you gain a deeper understanding of His love for you. Prepare to be changed!
