Eph. 3, 17

I.

The [missing word] we have of Him has its chief value in the expression to which it leads.  It is the foundation of a living faith in Christ that we may enjoy him.  “How can they believe in him of whom they have not heard?”  How important is the message!  Being divine he is the Saviour of all who believe.

II.

“By faith.”  This is to be our attitude toward him–so to believe in him as to welcome him into our hearts that he may establish us in grace.  “I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.”  “Ye shall know that…ye are in me and I in you.”  “I live yet not I, but Christ liveth in me.”  (Gal. 2, 20)  “Christ in you the hope of glory.”  (Col. 1, 27)  So we are to enjoy his blessed presence in our hearts.  What an enriching experience!

III.

The consciousness of his presence in our hearts will refrain us from sin–unkindness, wrath, evil speaking, etc.

It will fill our lives with love, pure, unselfish, joyous, hopeful, helpful always.

“Let me love thee more and more.”

We will make constant progress in Christian experience, until we shall be filled with all the fullness of God.
