Scripture Reading: Ephesians 1:18-23
Scripture Quote: 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 Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. (Ephesians 3:16-18)
God's Word conveys ideas of infinite importance to mankind. Academics try to explain it, but the mystery within it can’t be successfully verbalized. Believers take nourishment from the Bible incrementally - When we reread a certain passage for the umpteenth time, suddenly it pierces past our minds into our hearts and it transforms us. Every word seems to have come immediately from heaven - We need to study and continually learn from it all our lives. Love, mercy and truth can never be redundant.
Christians often face trials too great for our natural strength and temptations which we do not have the power to resist without help. We are given Divine strength from the Holy Spirit and verbal ammunition as we memorize verses from God's Word. The believing heart is the endless residence of God, in which dwells all power, all love, and the mystery of the eternal Trinity. All this resides in each of our hearts that believe in Jesus!
Today’s meditation: Set your goal on God’s best for your life.
