Dr. David Jeremiah daily devotionals August 11 2022 : Complete in Him

    David Jeremiah daily devotionals August 11 2022 :

    For in [Christ] dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him.
    Colossians 2:9-10

    When we fill our car with gas and the pump shuts off automatically, the tank is full. When we fill a sports bottle with water before heading to the tennis court, it is full. When we pack the dishwasher with plates, glasses, bowls, and utensils, it is full—there is room for nothing more. We understand what it means for something to be full; it has reached its capacity.

    The apostle Paul used the idea of fullness to express the truth that, in Christ, we are full of God Himself. First is the “fullness of the Godhead”—there is nothing lacking in God. He is perfect, full of deity. Then, Paul says that the fullness of God dwells in Christ in “bodily” form. Finally, if we are in Christ, then all the fullness of God dwells in us: We “are complete in Him.” If we have Christ, there is nothing more of God’s presence and reality to receive. To search for something more of God outside of Christ is a vain search.

    Don’t be tempted by religious propaganda that seeks to give you something new (Colossians 2:8). If you are in Christ, you have the fullness of God.

    There is an infinite fullness in Jesus Christ.
    J. C. Ryle.
