Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 3:18


3:18 That being rooted and grounded - That is, deeply fixed and firmly established, in love. Ye may comprehend - So far as an human mind is capable. What is the breadth of the love of Christ - Embracing all mankind. And length - From everlasting to everlasting. And depth - Not to be fathomed by any creature. And height - Not to be reached by any enemy.


People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 3:18


Eph 3:18 May be able to comprehend. Unless they were "rooted and grounded in love" (Eph 3:17) and the "love of God shed abroad" in their hearts (Ro 5:5), it would be impossible for them to comprehend the exceeding riches of the love of Christ. This is the climax of prayer, the point to which the other petitions tend. Indeed, from the beginning of the Epistle, he has been declaring what love Christ has shown for the Gentile world.

    Being grounded in love is so very powerful to all believers in Christ Jesus. No matter what we do and what we say, let it be rooted and planted in God’s ❤️ love not worldly love, not mans kind of love, but the most highest Form of love, Agape Love. The Love that is kind and tender hearted and forgiving and most of all, long suffering. The way God saved us just in the nick of time

    Ephesians 3-20, I believe that knowing that we have the power with in us that when we ask God for something no matter what it is and He do it for us, then as a born again believer with the holy spirit dwelling in us that we should not call it a miracle, it should be expected. That is what God has put into my spirit. Ask Him and trust Him and expect it.
