Ephesians 3:19 – And to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
The very idea of the possibility of being filled with God’s fullness is unimaginable. However, when we consider that we have been filled with the Holy Spirit and how Jesus and the Father have come to dwell in us, we recognize this is indeed the will of God for our lives (John 14:17,23; Colossians 1:27; Ephesians 3:9; Luke 3:16). The indwelling fullness of God is viewed in Ephesians Chapter 4 as “the measure of the maturity of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13).
The growth and maturity we are called to in God is directly related to knowing His love. John said that if we dwell in love, then we dwell in God (1 John 4:16). If there is any principal and reality in God we must grasp it is this: we must walk in love (Ephesians 5:1-2, 4:15; John 13:34). The way of love must decide all of our responses and direct all of our decisions. The child of God must be willing to actively participate with the working of the Holy Spirit, Who’s desire is to reveal Jesus and express the love of God through our lives (Galatians 5:22; John 16:14; Acts 1:8; Galatians 1:16, 2:20; Philippians 1:21; Romans 5:5).
