GOD’S EXTRAVAGANT LOVE
Part 2

“That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith, that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God”
(Ephesians 3:17-19).
