From today’s New Testament reading, from Ephesians: ‘For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with might through his Spirit in the inner man, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fulness of God’.

These are some of the most inspiring words in all of the Epistles – in a sense, they are a complete Gospel. We pray that we may be rooted and grounded in love, as the Apostle says, and grow ever more deeply like unto Christ. May God bless you abundantly this day.
