“and I have made Your name known to them, and will continue to make it known, so that the love with which You have loved Me may be in them [overwhelming their heart], and I [may be] in them.”
– John 17:26 (AMP)
Growth in Christ is a continuous, never ending process. The greatest mistake you can make is to come to a point of stagnation where you erroneously believe that you have come to a full knowledge of Christ.
Irrespective of the title you bear, in His sight we are Children, always in need of more of Him to grow.
In this verse, Jesus promises to continue to reveal the Father to us. Why? He seems to suggest a link between the knowledge of the Father and the feeling of overwhelming love. That is, the more of the Father we know, the more conscious of how beloved we are.
This assurance of love (overwhelming love) is required for faith, boldness, confidence, and trust in God.
So don’t be tired of embracing the knowledge of God. Don’t be tired of fellowship. Don’t stop pressing for more of Him.
The more of Him you embrace the more of His love overwhelms you and the more at peace you are in this world of great tribulation.
Dear Heavenly Father, More of you I ask in my life. More of your grace. More of your Love that surpasses all knowledge. May the power of the Holy Spirit fill my life to overflowing. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
