Eph 3:18-19 AMP That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; 19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

1Jn 4:16 AMP And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him.

It is through the knowledge of God’s Love and the experiencing of His Love that we can share His divine nature. God did not only give us His promise He enables us by filling us with the power to imitate Him as His children. The word of God instructs us to imitate Him in the book of Ephesians chapter five verse one. In Ephesians chapter three verses twenty-two and twenty-three illustrate what we need to do to experience the very power of God. Our heavenly Father knows He can trust us with this power if His Love is controlling us and His Grace is training us.

Eph 5:1 AMP THEREFORE BE imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father].

Eph 3:20 AMP Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]– 21 To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).

You would do well to read this chapter over and let the Holy Spirit lead you in understanding the truth, and depth of God’s love for you as His child. God created you to live with Him eternally. He desires to bless you eternally taking you from one level of Glory to another forever. Having enabled you to create even as you have been recreated in love. In His love He has planned for you to live the good life which is nothing less than God quality of life which He calls the “Good Life” in Christ Jesus.

Eph 2:10 AMP For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].

Joh 10:10 KJV The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

2Co 4:17 AMP For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!],
