"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 3:18-19
This stuck out to me as I spent time with Christ this morning. The writer's prayer for us was that we would understand the width, length, height and depth of Christ's love. That we would experience it.
So much of the world these days is hungering, longing, desperate for the next great experience. When someone really enjoys a vacation or a restaurant or a new place, the highest compliment you can give is "It was just a wonderful experience!" It's a big deal from a marketing perspective too--we passed from the product focused era ("toothpaste") to the service area ("cleaning"), and now we've entered the experience era--themed restaurants, classy grocery stores, eclectic coffee shops.
I don't have it figured out. I don't live this way every day. But I want to. I need to. I need to experience Christ's radical love each and every day.
