Rooted and grounded

Posted by appolus on May 18, 2020

That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God. (Eph 3:17-19)

There is 250,000 miles to the moon and 93 million miles to the sun. There is just under 6 trillion miles in a light year. Apparently the nearest star in our solar system is Proxima Centuri at just over 4 light years away, which would make it 24 trillion miles away. The furthest known galaxy from here is 14 billion light years away, that’s 14 billion times 6 trillion. That number boggles the mind. Despite the immensity of that scale, none of that contains God, He contains all of that and holds it in the psalm of His hand . And the amazing thing is that this immense God has deemed to make Himself known to us. When the Scripture says that eye hath not seen nor ear heard nor has it entered into the hearts of man what God has prepared for those who know Him, then this is totally mind blowing.

Brothers and sisters, we can know that which surpasses knowledge and be filled with the fullness of a God who is immense beyond our capability to even imagine. This is no mere theology, no wistful dreamings, this is the reality of the saints. Men have stood on the top of Everest and saw the curvature of the earth and gasped. Men have stood on the moon, looked back at the beauty of the earth and gasped. But the man who has stood upon the horizon of eternity and glimpsed the majesty and immensity of God, his gasp is the sound of him being ruined for this life.

There has been a fragrant army which has walked the earth in the last 2000 years, and everyone of them has stood upon the horizon of eternity and gazed with wide open spiritual eyes at the glory and the majesty of a God that has filled them. They long, with the Apostle Paul, to be with their Lord. It burns at the center of who they are, it consumes them and drives them on down the narrow path of life. Even when they walk through the darkest valleys, even when they are beset with trials and tribulations, even with the weight of their cross bearing down on them, they remember that horizon, that glory, that majesty that immensity, that place where words have no meaning. They lift their eyes to the glory of the Living God and cry out that they are coming home soon, that every trial is another step closer to home.

    Brother Frank. The very thing that keeps me encouraged day by day, is the simple fact that he has given me a glimpse of his Kingdom and eternity. He has given me a glimpse of himself. A person can read the bible, and even memorize it, they can pray without ceasing. They can do mighty deeds for the Lord. But what makes the remnant saint stand out apart from all of those things is the simple fact that they have gotten a glimpse of Jesus. Good word brother.
