Do you need someone to pray like this about you – May the Lord, out of His glorious riches, strengthen you with power in your inner being? (v16) Ask! Can you, like Paul, let someone know this is how you pray for them?
“… That you, being rooted and grounded in love,”
We are blessed to know the love of God, steadfast and pure, faithful and true.
And in Jesus (the true vine) we are to be rooted and grounded in His love for us.
Because it is love that binds together after an argument between husband and wife, brother and sister, best friends.
It is love that helps us wrestle with a fear of starting a new adventure, a new job or school or other major event.
Because it is love that allows us to come together from all walks of life to worship the living and true God. Despite our differences, our attitudes, our personalities and our decisions. Despite the wrongdoing that happens, the conversations that turn bad, the hurt and pain that we give and receive.
And this love is from God – It is His love that we show to the world.
Praise God for His love!
* Father God,
Thank You that You loved us so much as to send Your Son, Jesus.
Thank You that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Thank You that Your love cannot be broken or torn apart or made impure.
Please help us to show one another Your love today and each day onwards Lord God.
