No, not in degree. If all believers had the same experience of the love of God, Paul would not have prayed for the Ephesians that they "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" Ephesians He prayed this because some were deficient in their experience of this love of God in Christ. How then do we pursue the fullness of the experience of the love of God poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit? One key is to realize that the experience is not like hypnosis or electric shock or drug-induced hallucinations or shivers at a good tune.
Rather it is mediated through knowledge. It is not the same as knowledge. But it comes through knowledge. Or to say it another way, this experience of the love of God is the work of the Spirit giving unspeakable joy in response to the mind's perception of the demonstration of that love in Jesus Christ. In this way Christ gets the glory for the joy that we have. It is a joy in what we see in him. Where can you see this in the Scriptures? Consider 1 Peter , "Though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory.
Joy beyond words. It is not based on a physical seeing of Christ. But it is based on believing in Christ.
Christ is the focus and content of the mind in this inexpressible joy. In fact, 1 Peter says that the joy itself is "in" the truth that Peter is telling us about the work of Christ. It says, "In this you greatly rejoice. It is the truth that 1 in "His great mercy [God] has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead;" and 2 we will "obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away;" and 3 , we "are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time" 1 Peter In this we "greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory.
In this we rejoice!
The experience of unspeakable joy is a mediated experience. It comes through knowledge of Christ and his work. It has content. We think our worth is based on performance or possessions, that we have to be perfect to be loved, or that we're too ordinary to be used by God. Deeper tears down these lies and teaches women to replace them with four truths from Psalm God knows me, he protects me, he made me, he values me. Using compelling narrative and Scripture, Deeper helps women transform their lives by trusting in the reality of God's love.
Instead of striving for perfection and worth, readers can rest in the truth that they are his. Read more Read less. Kindle Cloud Reader Read instantly in your browser.

Go Deeper in Your Relationship with God
It gave me chills. I won't go into detail so I don't spoil the book. But I say this in another review for Ms. Alsdorf - her writing style is so relate able - just like listening to a genuine friend. She's not had an easy life - but she has had a God-filled life.
Her testimony is only further encouragement and further proof that God speaks to his children. Format: Paperback Verified Purchase. Debbie Alsdorf writes a deeply personal book about living in the reality of God's love. She shares practical application of how this looks in the lives of broken, hurting women. Her personal illustrations serve to display the work of a God who cares about His children and is intimately involved in their lives. I highly recommend this book to any woman who wants a glimpse into the heart of a loving, caring, personal God.
One person found this helpful. Verified Purchase. Knowing how much God loves me, knowing how precious I am in God's sight is amazing to experience on a daily bases. Being His vessel is awesome! I'm not perfect I still have to go and ask for forgiveness duh, I'm human!
It doesn't make my life perfect either but, I know whose I am, and I know who I am with that said I have the peace that passes all understanding. This is such an amazing book! It will not only bring you closer to God, it helps you get to know yourself better. Take your time and really marinate in this book. Your life will never be the same. God truly blessed Debbie Alsdorf with an ability to bring you closer to God in a way that you never expected or imagined!
This book and the author was a huge blessing and I thank God for her! Thank you, Debbie, for your obedient heart to write this book for so many to read and authentically deepen their relationship with our Heavenly Father! Stasia Nielsen.
