“Know this love that surpasses knowledge” – Vicar’s Comment

I wonder if you’ve ever had the experience of tidying a room and it taking far longer than you planned.

Why? Well because as you went through all of your stuff, you kept finding things that you’d forgotten existed and so you spent time looking at them.

Perhaps you stumbled across an old diary or book of photos that you’d forgotten you had.

Whilst it might feel frustrating that it makes the task longer, I imagine there’s a chance you were glad to have been reminded of such half-forgotten memories.

In my own walk with Jesus, I’ve realised the value of spending time looking at the foundational truths of my Christian status which in the busyness and pressure of everyday life might become obscured.

In Christ, God gives us eternal life. He forgives us our sins. He makes us part of his family. He gives us his everlasting love. He gives us his Holy Spirit to live within us and give us new life.

Spend time with the big gospel truths; dwell on them, because God wants Christians to know their status.

As Ephesians 3: 19 shows us, God’s desire is that in Christ we ‘know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.’
