'Planted in love and built on love we will come to know the love of Christ which is beyond all knowledge and we will be filled with the utter fullness of God.' ~Ephesians 3:18-19
The population of the world is 6.5 billion or 6,500 million people, which is staggering. There are 193 countries in the world and 6,800 known languages. The one common link through them all is the language of love. We often take this language for granted. Without it we shrivel and cease to be human. With it the possibilities are endless and the many challenges we face on our daily journey become manageable. As believers our starting point is the belief that God is love. Everything else is built on this. Scripture reminds us that we will be filled with the utter fullness of God. This might be hard to understand but in simpler language it most likely means that our lives will never quite be the same again! To be open to the language of God's love in our lives brings meaning, direction, fulfillment and a sense of purpose to everything we do. It's a bit like a map. With one there is no guarantee we will find our way and that we won't get lost. But with a map the chances of it happening are greatly reduced. To be open to God's love means we are in a much better position to get the most from life.
