KNOWING THE UNKNOWABLE

KNOWING THE UNKNOWABLE

Eph. 3:19 Amp. [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

Paul sounds like a man out of his mind, to know something that can’t be known, what is he talking about? For those of you who have tasted, or better yet, are tasting the love of God, you have a good idea of what the Apostle is talking about. There is a knowing or tasting of God’s love that touches the deepest parts of our lives that actually brings revelation and life into our souls. God’s love is the beginning of life. Albert Barnes commented about this love that passes knowledge.

“Which passeth knowledge – There seems to be a slight contradiction here in expressing a wish to know what cannot be known, or in a desire that they should understand that which cannot be understood. But it is the language of a man whose heart was full to overflowing. He had a deep sense of the love of Christ, and he expressed a wish that they should understand it. Suddenly he has such an apprehension of it, that he says it is indeed infinite. No one can attain to a full view of it. It had no limit. It was unlike anything which had ever been evinced before.”

I guess the thing that stunned Paul and still stuns us today is that Christ died to save sinners. He didn’t save His love for the righteous but for the most miserable people on earth. Paul counted himself as the “chief of sinners” because he persecuted God’s people. In our own way, we are all the “chief of sinners”. When we see and accept that, we are on our way to change. Kathryn Kuhlman spoke often of God’s love for us. here is something she had to say.

“Who can fathom the love of God? He loved us while we were yet sinners. You may be a sinner reading these words right now. You may have committed every sin in the book and broken every commandment of God. Yet, the Lord continues to love you. He has not cast you aside. When Jesus hung on the cross, looking upon His enemies as He was being crucified, He said: “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” That is God’s love, the love of heaven paying earth a little visit through the Person of Jesus.”

He loves you now regardless of what you’ve done, all He wants is your heart. When you yield to Him and accept His love, that’s when the healing will start. Maybe you feel like no one loves you, especially the Lord. If that’s you today, I have good news for you, He loves you totally, unconditionally, and permanently. Taste it for yourself, let the healing start. You will be able to say with Paul, “I am tasting a knowledge that can’t be known”.

  1. Im so thankful today his mercy is renewed every day, we get a new day in him, I love it when we get to see Him move and direct us. ever be headed in a direction and have the Lord tell you no? I have, sometimes he has a better way more than what we could ever even comprehen,He watches out for our welfare and lets us know, it may be a direction He wants to change so we dont get bogged down, or he may want us to share something else from something we prepared, and address it different because of special needs the body has at the time. This I do know ,He has it all in His control, Im so glad of that!
