“For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.” –Colossians 2:9-10
- We are “brought to fullness” in Christ. How many times have I chased after things (even good things) in the hope that they’ll fulfill me? They won’t. Only Jesus fills us up. So today, if we have Jesus, we are full.
- Jesus is the “head” over everything. Over every single thing, our Lord and Savior is in charge. As we let him fill us, we can breathe deeply, knowing he has the universe in the palm of his hand and is above each detail (Psalm 139; Matthew 10:29-31).
- “…all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form” in Jesus. Wowzie. That’s gonna take awhile to chew on, but for now let’s stand in awe at our triune God.
How would our lives change if we truly believed these things? How would today change if we walked into our Wednesdays already full instead of searching for completion? Let’s be so filled with Jesus that his love and grace and truth overflow to all those around us. Enjoy today, my friends!
