Ephesians 3:14-19 ESV
14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Everyone loves to make their dwelling place their own. We fill our spaces with furniture, decorations, and everything that makes it feel like home. Usually, we don’t mind letting others visit, but how many people intentionally design their homes for permanent guests?
God dwells in our hearts by faith.
Today, I want to encourage you to make room! Jesus Christ lives in our hearts and the Holy Spirit dwells within us to empower us to transform. The word dwell in this passage can be interpreted as ‘make yourself at home.’ We have to make our bodily environment comfortable for Jesus to live within. Also, we have to give Him total access to every part of our being. Otherwise, we’ll miss the true picture of the fullness of God and so much more waiting for us.
Reflect – Do you live a life rooted and grounded in love? How do you demonstrate it daily?
