Re:Verse passage – Ephesians 3:14-21 (day six)

So please don’t lose heart…Ephesians 3:13

Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. 1 John 4:18

To know and experience the love of God is to live and love without fear. Fear, or losing heart, leads to self-preservation. Love leads to freely giving of ourselves to others. Fear dehumanizes. Love restores our humanity. Fear leads to trusting our instincts. Love leads to trusting Jesus.

That is how Paul was praying. The only way they could not lose heart was to know and experience the love of Jesus more deeply, and it is there, and only there that they can know the fullness of God (all that he purposed them to be).
