Rooted and Established in Love

I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance. I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him.

Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.



Taken from Ephesians 1 and 3

Hey Gary,

I was just talking to a woman from our Torah study the other week and she told me she found your blog via my blog. She showed me she was encouraged by one of your blogs and had printed it out and pinned it up on her fridge. :-)

Just thought I'd share. I appreciate the encouraging work you do on your blog, as do others.

Blessings in Messiah.

Hi Bino,

I thought it was good too. When I thought about what to post, I looked through all of the translations out on Bible Gateway and the NLT was the one that spoke to my heart.

In Christ,
Gary
