The Desire of My Heart

My prayer for all of you out there in cyberspace who might read this post:

"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" –Ephesians 3:16-19, NIV.

It's all there:
1. The saving faith that comes from him and brings us unto a personal and intimate relationship with him expressed in "so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith."

2. The growth and permanence of that relationship expressed in "rooted and established in love."

3. The power that buries "me" to embrace him as I discover the truth of "how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ."

4. The anticipation of what it will be like to reach the ultimate goal of Christlikeness as expressed in "filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."

As I want all this for myself, so I want it for others. The best service I can offer is to pray this prayer for them, and then do what I can to help them toward seeing the prayer become reality in their lives.
