Knowing the Fullness of God

Are we seeking God or seeking knowledge in our lives?


Ephesians 3:19

How much knowledge do we seek? How often do we accept that we simply do not know any particular subject? Or do we look up things to check the facts for ourselves?

Seeking knowledge of the mind will limit our living. We must learn as much as we can for the mind but our priority needs to be on experiencing the love of Christ. This knowledge is different.

To know how much Jesus loves us, that God loves us to have given his only Son, is to begin to live a full life. In getting to know God’s love for us is to begin to understand that God is love. Once we embrace God in this manner we can move upward in the divine reality.

The opposite is to remain grounded on earthly matters. Stuck on fears, concerns of the world, and pleasures. To seek knowledge for our own benefit instead of coming to the understanding that we are loved by God. To either remain earthly or open ourselves to the truth of God in us.

Let us meditate on the fact that God made each one of us personally. God willed us individually to life. That God became human to come closer to us; we who turned away from God. And if we open ourselves God can dwell in us today.
