Filled to the Measure One-a-Day Friday  5/18/18

A life worthy

—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:19).

Filled to the measureto be so full of God that there’s no room for anything else.  You know what that makes me think of? It makes me think of the scene in It’s a Wonderful Life when Jimmy Stewart is wooing Donna Reed.  He tells her he’s gonna lasso the moon and bring it down for her. She could then swallow the moon, and the moonbeams would shoot out from her fingertips and the ends of her hair.  That’s what this verse makes me think of. Paul wants us to be so full of God’s love that it pours out of us—shoots out of us in all directions. Beloved, if we could just grasp the giganticatiousness of God’s love, we would be filled to capacity with his…well, with him.

And if you overflow into the lives of those around you…


would that be so bad?

Happy Friday, Beloved
