Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2016 April 5

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. (Ephesians 3:17-19)

Today’s Morsel:  During the month of February, here at our church, the theme was Christian Soldiers in Love. We discussed and taught on the importance of loving God, loving our neighbor, and loving ourselves.  Jesus tells us that by love people would know that we are His disciples. Isn’t it amazing that many of those that say they follow Jesus so soon reveal that they are not His disciples?  Even many that followed Him while He walked here on this earth cried out on that Friday to crucify Him because He was not in their hearts!  Paul told the church at Ephesus that he desired that Christ dwell in their hearts by faith, rooted and grounded in love, so that they could comprehend Christ’s love.  So many do not understand God's love because He is not in their heart.  Until you are filled with the Holy Ghost, you can never fully know God’s love.  God is love and He desires to make His abode in us.  Jesus desires to write His law in our hearts so that we will know Him (Jeremiah 31:33, Hebrews 8:10-11).  Until we have a clear understanding of Him, and have Him in our hearts, we will never understand His love.

Sing: I love Him too much to fail Him now, too much to break my vow, for I promised the Lord, that I would make it somehow, and now I love Him too much to fail Him now.

Thought For Today: Calvary speaks of His love.
