Day Four: Designed for Fullness

Colossians 2:9-10
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness.

Ephesians 2: 17-19
And I pray that you… know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Just think about that… we are meant to be filled to “the fullness of God”. What is the standard of our “fullness”? Is it just to the measure of feeling “emotionally happy”? That’s not full enough. The fullness we are to receive goes way beyond human emotion. We are meant to be full to the measure of God himself. We know we are full when we match God’s fullness. Or to put it another way, our joy is to match the standard of God’s joy. Let’s not settle for a joy that is anything less than the joy of God himself. We were designed for the fullness, God’s fullness. We can live this way each day through the Holy Spirit who has made us one with God “in Christ”.

Let’s pray: Heavenly Father, this world is searching for fullness, but I know it is only found in you. I thank you for bringing me into your divine fullness through the Holy Spirit and faith in Christ. In Jesus’ name, amen.
