“For in Him all the fulness of Deity dwells in bodily form and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority…” Colossians 2:9-10 NASB
Living in-completely complete…?
If you are a follower of Jesus .. then all the fulness of Christ lives in you. His life is your life. This simple truth places you in the center of this broken-completely-unfixable world. And you are acutely aware of just how incomplete your life feels on the inside. And yet .. Your life is .. complete in Christ today. Your life .. has never been more secure than at this moment. And yet .. there are all the pressures .. struggles .. and everyday things that await you throughout the day. This the same life that Jesus lived. He lived in the fulness of His Father’s love. His life is now “in” you and you live in the fulness of Christ’s love for you. Whatever you face today .. You will face in the same power that raised Christ from the dead. This same God is working in and throughout your life. He’s given you the very power to believe .. and lives in you as you walk in this same faith. Your life is is complete not because of your efforts but because you live a resurrection life through Christ. It only takes a moment …
“having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.” Colossians 2:12 NASB
