For the last several weeks, I have been taking my church through a study on the book of Colossians. Though it is only four chapters, it is some of the Apostle Paul’s most profound writing. We are currently in chapter two, and I couldn’t help but rejoice as a read a particular line. I am starting at verse nine.
Colossians 2:9-10 (NKJV)
9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;
10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
All of this is so powerful, however, as Paul talks about the fullness of the Godhead being in Jesus, he then makes this simple but incredible statement. “AND YOU ARE COMPLETE IN HIM.” Because of who Paul was talking to, he was saying; you do not need anything else once you are filled with His Spirit. You don’t need the philosophy of the Greeks or the traditions of the Jews. Your salvation is secure in Jesus.
God fulfilled the law through the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. That means He completed it in Him, so He could then complete us. We should rejoice and be glad this day for all we need is in Jesus. WE ARE COMPLETE IN HIM!!!
