21 Apr Christ is Everything – 4/21/21
Colossians 2:9-10 – “For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.”
Imagine: God is great, mighty and endless; His full deity fit into a single body. Jesus is great, mighty and endless. All truth is found within Him, therefore He is the one we must seek in all circumstances. In the previous verses, Scripture says to not let people capture you with empty philosophies and smart sounding nonsense, which comes from human thinking. However, don’t be fooled by the smart sounding philosophies for the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. Christ is everything and all truth is found within Him alone. Everything else is nonsense and void. Are there some things in your life that you are not trusting God to have the answer for? I want to challenge you to seek Him in that situation. I assure you God knows everything you are going through and He knows exactly how you are to get through it. Believe that Jesus is the Lord of all truth and let that faith show through your actions. Through your union in Christ alone you are made complete, needing nothing.
Jesus, we are thankful that we have one person to go to for all things in life. You have given us such a great hope. No matter the circumstance we know we can come to you in confidence. We trust that you are the only one that has all knowledge and all power. We trust that you hear every utterance we bring to you. Thank you, Jesus, for who you are to us. What an honor that the one with all authority and dominion would want to know us and love us like family. Jesus, you are all that we need to make us complete and whole. When you restore, there is nothing left to mend. Everything good and true is found in you. What an amazing thing to know! Amen.
