They Must Not Know This Man Called Jesus

Up early.
Praying for loved ones.
Especially for those dear friends and family who do not call Jesus Lord and know Him as friend.
Praying Scripture on their behalf.
Specifically, Ephesians 3:14-19:
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name.
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being , so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.
 And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people,  
to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 
and to know this love that surpasses knowledge -- that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 

When my children were young they listened to a musical about Easter called Little Tree. My daughter Brietta would often sing a song from that musical with the following lyrics. The character from Little Tree is puzzled and wonders how it is that people could treat Jesus cruelly and mock Him. At last comes this realization:
If they had known Him like I do,
If they had felt His gentle touch
If they'd only seen the love in His eyes.
Well, I hope some day they will, and like me they'll understand
What it is to know this man called Jesus...Jesus...
Oh, they must not know this man called Jesus.
And so today I pray that many might have the power to comprehend, to have knowledge of,

to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. 

I pray that they might know this man called Jesus.

Hello Darlene,

I feel that I should introduce myself since I may from time to time read your blog. On Good Friday I was searching the web for the lyrics to the song "They Must Not Know This Man Called Jesus"... I still find it amazing that only two results showed up out of the entire world wide web!!! And both were from your blog! What a pleasant and refreshing surprise. I felt and still feel like I am intruding on your private space so I haven't dare tread any further.
Today, I thought that I should at least share with you how beautifully you write and how it was so nice to happen upon your blog.

I wish you a Happy Easter and many blessings,

your sister in Christ,

Marie-Claire
