The love that surpasses knowledge

Surpass is exceed a marked limit, going beyond what is needed. For example, if you pour more liquid than a container can hold, the liquid that does not fit spills. So, we say that you surpassed the amount of liquid that could be put into that container. The love of God exceeds all knowledge, all science, all human understanding, and that love is that God wants us to be overflowing.

The love of God surpasses all knowledge, and this is more than true, because if we reflect on that we understand that God has poured out His love for us without deserving it. He has loved us with such a sublime love that we were amazed at that.

Augustine said:

“God loves each of us as if there was only one of us, so we should worship God as the only true God.”

This is the simple truth, God as father loves us with great dedication, does not forget His love for any of us, has the same exact quantity of time for each one of us, His love surpasses all knowledge.

The apostle Paul wrote:

17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,

18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,

19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Ephesians 3:17-19

What is love? Love is not something that can be defined simply with a dictionary or in any way, the love of truth is God, who sent His Son Jesus to die for our sins when we were lost. God did not ask for anything in return, but justified us when we were completely condemned, this is the love of God that exceeds all knowledge!

We pray to God to keep us full of this fullness in Him, that we never forget what He has done for us and that we can similarly speak to the world of that love of God that exceeds all knowledge.

    The love that surpasses knowledge
    ========================
    Anything we may think about love at time to compare with
    another love is a pure theory. We know about mother’ s love, for instance, and we can think there is not any love as that of a mother may feel for the babe in arms born of her bowels, but the news inform us sometimes, as a mother forsakes her babe in arms or throws him in the bin.

    This may be an understandable love, but the apostle Paul tells us about another love which we need to have power to grasp on: the love of God in the person of Christ. He says we… “may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, 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 3:18-19

    The love of Christ surpasses our knowledge of things, these we can see, feel or understand, but we are advised to beg the Lord for receiving the power to grasp on such a knowledge in all its dimensIons.

    Really we need power from the Spirit to know this love so that we may be filled with the measure of all fullness of God.

    Who are interested in receiving this power? Those who love the Lord Jesus Christ indeed.

    May we pray the Lord God to consider his goodness and wish to love his Only begotten Son, that loved us with this love which surpasses all knowledge.
