FINDING OUR COMPLETENESS
There is much said and written in our day about finding ‘fulfillment’ in our lives. Having the right education, the right partner, the right job, etc., are part of what people consider things needed to complete their lives. All these pursuits will end by death or by some other circumstance in the course of life. So where do we find ‘real fulfillment’?
“For in Him (Christ) the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in Him” (Col. 2:9-10). What an amazing truth! Paul approaches our completeness by first declaring that deity was residing completely in Christ. His person and work were a complete representation of God and thereby becomes the basis for our being made “full”. As persons who have placed our faith in Jesus for salvation, we then receive our fulness in Him. This is a must for every believer to understand and live by. If we miss this principle, we will always be groping for something more, something other than Jesus to satisfy or make us complete.
This Scripture should make us STOP and CONSIDER our view of who we are in Christ. If we fall short by not seeing that our fulness is in Christ, we have missed God’s purpose for us. If we grow in this understanding, every relationship, starting with marriage, will be characterized by Christ being the center. This is the work of the Spirit in us. Jesus said of the Spirit, “He will glorify Me, for He will take what is mine and declare it to you” (John 16:14).
If you feel incomplete, then Christ has not become your center; your all. THIS ONE THING IS NECESSARY!
