God: require that we pray…
Ephesians 3:17-19 (KJV) “That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love; may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God”.
To believe in Jesus, there has to be a measure of faith working within a person and that faith must have been activated for anyone to interact with Him at the basic level.
When all this is accomplished then we can move on to a level of knowing which is dictated by how much we want out of the relationship. The good thing is that God will feed into us as much as we are ready to receive of Him. For some of us it might take some time as He works out the pins and needles in our system and get rid of the dross which has crept in over the period of time.
Saying that to say that knowing Christ takes making the effort to pray, communicate and talk to Him in your day, through the night, whenever you get the urging; reach out and talk to Him. He besought the disciples when He walked this earth to always “watch and pray”; He stressed and emphasized this one requirement and it has not changed for us today.
This is the key to gaining a deeper love and walk with Christ and equipping yourself with that intricate thing which is beyond the acquisition of knowledge or wisdom. Love will heal a world of illness and if you can gain the love of Christ, you are on your way to working that which many in this world are trying to solve without it.
Beloved, let us pray for each other and seek the love of Christ in its fullness.
