How deep the Father's love for us How vast beyond all measure That He should give His only Son To make a wretch His treasure This classic hymn heralds the amazing and unmeasurable love of God for us. Yet, while immeasurable, God wants his children to grasp and know this love. We know that from Paul's prayer in Ephesians 3:18,19 where Paul prays "that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge". Grasping means understanding this love. Knowing means experiencing it. Understanding. Experiencing. This is God's desire for all his children in relation to his love. If you are looking for a great prayer for your life, for the lives of your family, for your coaches, for your families in your ministry, this is a great prayer - "that we would all understand and experience the love of Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit."
