7And I [God] will give them a heart to know (recognize, understand, and be acquainted with) Me, that I am the Lord; and they will be My people, and I will be their God, for they will return to Me with their whole heart.
34And they will no more teach each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, Know the Lord, for they will all know Me [recognize, understand, and be acquainted with Me], from the least of them to the greatest, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
23 Thus says the Lord: Let not the wise and skillful person glory and boast in his wisdom and skill; let not the mighty and powerful person glory and boast in his strength and power; let not the person who is rich [in physical gratification and earthly wealth] glory and boast in his [temporal satisfactions and earthly] riches;
24 But let him who glories glory in this: that he understands and knows Me [personally and practically, directly discerning and recognizing My character], that I am the Lord, Who practices loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth, for in these things I delight, says the Lord.
35[Jesus said] But love your enemies and be kind and do good [doing favors so that someone derives benefit from them] and lend, expecting and hoping for nothing in return but considering nothing as lost and despairing of no one; and then your recompense (your reward) will be great (rich, strong, intense, and abundant), and you will be sons of the Most High, for He is kind and charitable and good to the ungrateful and the selfish and wicked.
17 May [Jesus] Christ through your faith actually dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,
18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people], the experience of that love, what is the breadth and length and height and depth of it;
19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of [Jesus] Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [that you may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a person wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!
Part 2 of a 2 part story:
Yesterday we began a story. Your child had judged you ― he had accused you of judging him. Your child ran away from home at age 14 so he could have fun.
As the years passed, your child became more and more bankrupt in every area. He had no money, no friends, no health, no hope, no real life, no joy. The only thing he experienced every day was hopelessness.
One day, someone from your city mentioned your name. Your son learned that, over the years, you’d become exceptionally wealthy and powerful.
Your son reasoned that if he returned home to you, you might share your wealth with him. After all, he was your son!
With the first bit of hope he’d had in years, your unrepentant son returned home to you, not to get to know you, but to get to know your possessions ― hoping to manipulate you, hoping to “earn” your riches by pretending good behavior.
Your son dreamed of your death so that he could inherit all your riches. What fun he could have when he was rich!
You sensed all this. Your son wasn’t fooling you.
Although you knew your son was acting, hoping to deceive you and manipulate you through his good behavior, wouldn’t your heart desire that he had returned home so that he could know you ― not for what you can give him, not for what you can do for him, but for who you are?
God, Who names Himself your Father, experiences a similar desire.

38 For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers,
39 Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
