Posted by donna on November 4, 2015

Capture.PNGEphesians 3:18 "... 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 4:13 "... until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."

The Apostle Paul is calling us to a great goal and a great opportunity. This is the goal of every believer and for the church as a whole, particularly for those who are appointed to leadership.


Oswald J. Smith, founder and pastor of the Peoples Church in Toronto wrote the hymn, "Into the Heart of Jesus" ... (he continues) 'deeper and deeper I go, seeking to know the reason why He should love me so'.

Holiness is the quest of the believer seeking to go deeper into the heart of Jesus. There is no Kingdom impact unless we go deep into the person and work of Jesus as seen in the truth of the Gospel message.  Holiness is right standing with God through Christ, but it is also a maturing, a deepening, and an entering into the fullness of God and the fullness of Christ as Paul explains in the Epistles. This is the true heart of the servant leader; to be like Christ.

More on this theme later....
