Monday, April 4th

When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Ephesians 3:14-19

Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. Ephesians 4:1-3

God is a redeeming God. He takes things that are broken and fixes them. People everywhere are broken and hurting. They need God's redeeming and healing love. In some ways we get used to our own brokenness and the brokenness all around us. Perhaps that's why when we see the power of God's love at work there is an unexpectedness to it. But inviting God into our brokenness and the brokenness all around us is what the kingdom is all about. Experiencing the power of God's love in our lives should be the norm and not the exception.

Our Ephesians 3 passage above has been serving as a theme and focus for us as a church since the start of the new year. We never want to take God's love for granted, but experiencing his love more fully and more consistently is what he is calling us to. What a great explanation Ephesians 3 gives us for how God's love works in our lives. It reaches into the depths of our inner being to do the work of healing our brokenness, hurt, and pain from the inside out. With great compassion, mercy, and grace God pours out the fullness of his love into our lives and we are forever changed.

The Ephesians 4 passage above reminds us of God's great and marvelous kingdom strategy. That which we experience in our relationship with God (compassion, mercy, grace, and love) other people should experience in their relationship with us. A loving, caring, and helpful life lived for the benefit of others is our calling from God. It is a life rooted in our own deep and abiding experience with God and his love. Our love relationship with God becomes the means God uses to bring his love to the broken lives of people all around us.

Lord, it is humbling to think that my life is intertwined with yours in such a way that I am a part of how you extend hope to a hurting world through the unexpected power of your love. Help me to get lost in your love to the extent that my eyes are off of myself and onto the hurting world around me that needs your love and grace so desperately. Make today an adventure in loving the hurting people you bring my way. Thank you Lord for the love and grace you pour out and into my life day by day.
