1. Ask God to ___ you with ___.

Paul transitions from talking about ___ love to ___ love.
“It is partly by loving that we learn the meaning of His love” (John Stott).

The love of Christ is “broad” enough to encompass all mankind (especially Jews and Gentiles...), “long” enough to last for eternity, “deep” enough to reach the most degraded sinner, and “high” enough to exalt him to heaven. (John Stott)

Whether you go forward or backward, up to the heights or down to the depths, nothing will separate us from the love of Christ. (Leslie Mitton)

4. Ask God to fill you with ___.
“...that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
So rather than asking God for more stuff, ask God for more ___. Because He will always fill you to your ___.
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine...”
It’s only by God’s great ___ that we can experience God’s great ___ in our spiritual family.
