Jesus Love is very wonderful

Paul says

"For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."

I need to be rooted and established in love if I am going to cope with all the pain and mayhem that we witness out on the streets.

I then need to express His love on the streets, somehow express love that surpasses all knowledge!

Think about it, what is knowledge?

Knowledge is knowing, knowledge is what we know, we know what we can define, what we can say with certaintity we understand, knowledge is our questions answered. Yet here we have a love that goes beyond that!

That’s fantastic a love that surpasses my questions, my How? Why? Where? When? An unexplainable love. A love beyond knowledge a long, high, deep love.

As a child we sang this song “Jesus love is very wonderful, it’s so high you can’t get over it, so low you can can’t get under it and so wide you can’t get around it” I love this song.

I want to live my life expressing the sentiment of this song.
