Sermon synopsis: A look at the vastness of the love of God
Eph 3: 16-19 'I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, 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.'
The love of God is expressed supremely in Jesus:
1 John 3:16 'This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.'
