God's dreams for you
And to know the love of Christ, which surpasses all knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:19).
In our study today, we will examine two vital thoughts related to God's dream for you. First, as a Christian, you must realize that you are vitally the house, the living tabernacle of Almighty God. You are full of God as Jesus was when he walked the earth. God is no less in you today than he was in Jesus Christ. This is not something you will have to grow into over time, no; It is a reality that you have to wake up to. You are the temple of the living God.
1 Corinthians 3:16 says:
"Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?"
What God wants is for you to become God within. He has filled you with Himself. This was made possible with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. His resurrection made it possible for us to have and live the life of God.
Second, God wants you to know and walk in the full and exact knowledge of his will. He doesn't want you to ever be confused about his will over anything at any time. Jesus never doubted the will of the Father; So why should you be? When you are filled with the knowledge (“epignosis” —Greek) of his will, you will be able to apply the wisdom of God to fulfill it. No wonder the Spirit prayed through the apostle Paul in Colossians 1:9 for this to come true for the Church:
“…That you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding.”
He wants this to happen here on earth, not when you get to heaven. It's his dream for you now. This is one of the reasons why attending Church services is so important to you as a Christian.
In the Church, you are taught the Word of God to build you up spiritually and strengthen your faith. The Word of God is the will and wisdom of God. To be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom is to be filled with his Word; and when that happens,
Colossians 1:10 says that you will be fruitful in every good work. What a life!
