Daily Delight

...that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—
to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God
.  -Ephesians 3:17-18 (NKJV)

This promise is incredible. Me? Rooted and grounded in love? I am mercifully and endlessly clothed with love. There is not even one second that passes me by where I am unloved. Not one. What does a fully loved daughter of delight, who has Christ in her heart by faith and is filled with the fullness of God, then do? What does that promise do to the love that she gives daily? 

Christ's love is unconditional and selfless. I want my love to be the same. That means that I give, I share, I sacrifice with absolutely no expectation of receiving anything back. It means that there is no longer room for pride, selfishness or fear to swoop in and take over. I can't, and you can't possibly love people deeply in our own attempts. I know because I've tried and failed… A lot. We must allow Christ in our hearts to give us the strength. May we pray for His vision when we look upon His sheep, for direction when we don't know how to love and compassion to all who cross our path. We have something that the world is in desperate need of, Calvary love. Every person is broken, fallen and sinful. The only thing that illuminates and ratifies the newness and joy within us is His love. 

Father, help us to be more like you and mold us to be your daughters who are rooted and grounded in love.
