…and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. – Ephesians 3:19

BINGO! Isn’t it fun when you’re the one yelling it? Bingo is a nice, easy game that most people can play. There are other games that can stretch us painfully mentally like Jeopardy, Trivia Pursuit (before you have the answers memorized) and others that seem to measure how much knowledge we have. I, for one, am always excited when I can answer one question among the many tough ones asked. My husband, however, excels at these types of questions for he has a great interest in history and geography, but don’t ask him about the great classic movies … that’s my department.

Aren’t we glad that it doesn’t take being a rocket scientist to be in the family of God? His love is more than facts and figures. It is a relationship … a relationship God started for he first loved us. To be filled with God takes being in relationship with him. As we spend time with the Creator of the universe, God will show us amazing things mostly about who he is and who we are to him. God’s love is more powerful than any amount of knowledge. That’s a fact you can depend on.

Prayer: Dear Lord, I do thank you for your love that is greater than all things. I pray that I may enjoy our relationship today and allow you to work through me. Amen

Faith Tip: If you are feeling unworthy because you believe you lack the knowledge to do anything for God, bask in the great love he has for you and allow him to work through you. God has great plans for you.
