Apostle Grace Lubega
Ephesians 1:15-18 (KJV): Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints
Paul prayed for the church at Ephesus that they may receive the spirit of wisdom and revelation and that the eyes of their understanding be flooded with light.
What is important to note in all this is that it all began from a place of love. The scripture reveals “…after I heard of your faith in the Lord and love unto all saints, cease not to give thanks for you…”
Paul made it a point to pray for the Church at Ephesus to receive the Spirit of revelation having heard of their faith in the Lord and LOVE unto all the saints.
In the absence of AGAPE- the unconditional Love of God, the revelation received by a man may be from another light.
It is easy to get excited about the depths in God but depth must find itself in love.
That is why Paul speaks of the depth, breadth, length and height of love (Ephesians 3:8).
God is love BEFORE He is revelation. He is love BEFORE He is deep. He is love BEFORE He is broad. He is love BEFORE He is high.
God is love and those that do not love do not know God!(1 John 4:8)
You can be deep and yet not know God but you cannot love and not know God. Praise God!
FURTHER STUDY: Ephesians 3:8, 1 John 4:8
God is love and those that do not love do not know God. You can be deep and yet not know God but you cannot love and not know God.
PRAYER: My loving father, when you loved the world, you gave. By love you drew me to yourself and still by love you keep me.
My Lord mysteries did not save me, depth did not save me, love did. This day, cause me to love deeper than ever before. May my life carry this one consistent testimony that I love God and God loves people through me.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
