Ephesians 3:17-19

That you, rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the holy ones what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Are you “rooted and grounded in love”?

We all are…but many people don’t know it.

It’s easy to get lost in the noise of the world and in the unbridled desires of our egos. We lose conscious awareness that Love is our source.

It usually takes great love or great suffering to wake us up.

God’s love is so immense that it is beyond anything we can imagine.

St. Paul experienced the fullness of this Love in a mystical encounter with the resurrected Christ (Acts 9)…and that experience began a transformation that changed him from a persecutor of Christians to one of the most zealous followers of Christ.

He became one of the most renowned preachers of the Good News…that God loves all people unconditionally.

While we can try to define the love of Christ…it surpasses any definitions.

Jesus truly emptied himself…all the way to the cross. May we be willing to empty ourselves in the name of Love as well.

It is only then that we will be transformed…and filled with the fullness of God.
