Jesus is alive and he encounters us personally by his Spirit. In this encounter, we are aware of the fullness of his love and our own lack of love. For the more the sun of divine love shines within us the more we feel our own inability to truly love. And yet, fully exposed before him, we know that he wants us. Yes, we are sure that we belong to him as those deeply loved by him and that nothing can ever separate us from him. Aware of our lack of love, we are amazed that he still wants us.
As those who belong, we continually seek him as the One who has already loved us.We seek him that we know more of his love. With Paul, we kneel before our Father asking that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen us with power through his Spirit in our inner being… 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 we may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
As we prayerfully seek him, we are aware that it is only he whom we seek who has again and again made us seekers. So we rest in the love of God in Jesus and yet also reach out evermore to know, ever deeper and ever fuller, the love that is beyond knowing.
