Ephesians 3.14-21

This passage from the book of Ephesians has such beautiful poetic language. Paul says in verse 18: "I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height an depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." Notice that word power. This doesn't seem to be power in any sense we think of power in modern day politics, economics or business. This is the power to comprehend God's love. It is a love that surpasses knowledge. I think many of us have experienced that love that seems to move beyond logic and beyond comprehension. One way that I have experienced that love is through wonderful friends that seem to always come beside me during dark and trying times. What are some ways that you all have experienced that love of God?
