“So that Christ may dwell in (our) hearts through faith and that (we), being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge that (we) may be filled up to all the fullness of God.”
