Greatness Is Love...Love Today
For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,[a] 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Father the only way that I can be truly great is if I know how deep and wide and how far your love reaches out to me. I know you love me, I see your love on the cross but let me grasp it. I need to take hold of it, I need to feel it, be that same love you are too me so that I can experience you in a way I never have before. I want to have the heart and mind to love you the same you love me even though I can't but just to know It is a desire. I know your love can take me many places, it can take me where I never thought I could go. Your love is my strength. I want to stand firm in your love, knowing that I can mot be shaken because I know your love and that love you have for me. In Jesus name I pray Amen.
People of God, Do you know that Greatness is in us because of Love. We do not deserve anything good that God gives us but because of Love it is possible. Even though, he still sets us high, he still lifts us up and put greatness in us. Jesus said to his disciples that they should do the same work as he did and they will do even greater works. Why would someone entrust a work that is so precious and important to us? Because the simple fact that we can get it done. He created us for greatness, He loves us enough to want us to be happy, and of good cheer. He loves you beloved. He really does. He desires so much for you, more than you desire for yourself. Try loving today like God. Try loving your Neighbors instead of hating them, try forgiving those who hurt you, Jesus did it by going to cross so if he did it we have to also.
