The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

“And that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge.” Ephesians 3:17b-19a (NASB)
Just as a blind man can never be made to understand the glories of a sunrise, or the light upon the far-off mountains; just as a deaf man may read books about acoustics, but they will not give him a notion of what it is to hear Beethoven, so we must have love to Christ before we know what love to Christ is. We must consciously experience the love of Christ before we know what the love of Christ is. We must have love to Christ in order to have a deep and living possession of the love of Christ, though reciprocably it is also true that we must have the love of Christ known and felt by our answering hearts if we are ever to love Him back again. Alexander Maclaren

  1. So very true :). Sometimes I wish I could see what God sees and figure out how to get a non-believer whom I dearly love to experience God’s love in a tangible way, but I constantly have to remind myself that it’s the Holy Spirit who draws people to Himself. I may play a part in the journey, but ultimately, it’s God who has to take the veil away so people can see clearly and get to the point of acknowledging Him.
