Fullness of God Experienced (Eph 3:18-19)
The Apostle Paul prayed for the believers in Ephesus to grow spiritually, to know the love of Christ and to be filled with the completeness of God. This “fullness of God” (Eph 3:19b) means the believers are to have the image of Christ in all areas of their lives. Paul prayed that the believers might have the following:
All believers “may be able” (i.e. to have full strength) to comprehend with all saints:
God's love for us surpasses our knowledge. We with our finite minds cannot fully comprehend how God the Father can give His Son to save us (filthy sinners). It is God who gives us the understanding.
Knowing Christ’s love will bring believers to a complete experience in Christ. When believers are filled with the fullness of God (filled with the knowledge of Christ) and sanctified by God’s Word, the image of Christ will be visible through the believers’ holy living.
Paul asks the believers to remember God's love, to live for Christ, and to be a holy witness for Christ until the day of glorification. The world’s knowledge will die but the love of Christ is forever. We must cherish God’s love, never let it diminish, keep it burning in our lives, and be a holy witness for Him.
