FILLED WITH THE FULLNESS OF GOD (3)

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. Filled with the fullness of God

a) God desires to fill us with the fullness of Himself. In the passage above we see the process of how Christ enters into us. First we must receive power through the Holy Spirit to have the ability to receive Christ into our heart. This is God’s grace whereby He does the work in you. Second is the entrance of Christ into your heart by faith. We always receive from God by grace through faith. Grace is God’s part and faith is our part. The Holy Spirit in you is proof of God’s love for you.  

By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. (1 John 4:13)  

b) Your faith is proof of your love for God. However, faith with out works is dead, so faith without obedience is not faith. Obedience to God proves your faith.

c) As we make a home for Christ in our heart through faith and obedience, He begins to give us revelations of the greatness of His love, the width, length, depth, and height of His love.  Notice that we are to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge. There are two different Greek words used here, the word for knowledge means to just know about it in your mind. The word used for to know means to “know absolutely”, to feel, perceive, and experience. This means that we are not to just know about God’s love we are to experience it. This kind of love is the most awesome experience we can have; it is the very presence of God in us. This is the greatest pleasure that you are created to experience. As we continue to walk in this kind of love, we become filled with all the fullness of God. Love creates an atmosphere where God can dwell. This is what all of the saints have experienced. This is God’s desire for you.


The End ...
