1. GOD'S LOVE TOWARDS US - UNDERSTANDING THE 4 DIMENSIONS OF THE LOVE OF GOD
We must understand breadth and lenght and height and depth of the love of Christ. God loves us so much that He gave his only
Son to save us. God loved us even before we loved him. Even when we we still sinners , Christ died for us . We deserved the
wrath of God for all the sins we had committed against God, but because of the great love of God we were saved through the
sacrificial death of Christ on the cross. We must live our life on earth through our faith in the Son of God who loved us and
gave Himself for us. We must receive the revelation of the love of God in our hearts. We must understand the love of God when
He chastens us and disciplines us. We must be willing to sacrifice anything that the Lord requires of us.
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.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.
No, the Father himself loves you because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts.
Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath.
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.
At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in
malice and envy, being hated and hating one another.
But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared,
he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of
rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit,
whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior,
so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual
blessing in Christ.
For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love
he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—
to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.
Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace.
And the God of love and peace will be with you.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by
faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
