Colossians 2:9-10

 
For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
Colossians 2:9-10

Jesus is ALL that we will ever need. He is the "fullness," which shows that He is equal in stature and position to the Father and the Holy Spirit. Why follow the empty philosophy and worldly notions when we have all fullness in Christ?

Christ can hold all the fullness of Deity; we cannot. When we are born again into the family of God, we are made complete in Christ. Our spiritual growth is not by addition, but by nutrition. We grow from the inside out. If we were to go to the Pacific Ocean with a mason jar and allow the ocean to rush into it, instantly our jar would be filled with the fullness of the Pacific. But we could never put the fullness of the Pacific into our jar. With Christ, we realize that because He is infinite, He can hold all the fullness of Deity (the Godhead). And when one of us finite creatures dips the tiny vessel of our lives into Him, we instantly become full of His fullness.

So let's come to the ocean of His fullness, not with a tiny jar, but with our very lives so that He can fill us as we take in more and more of Who He is.

In Christ,

Pastor Gerard Deleeuw
