Abounding Fullness

Commercials, billboards, and newspaper advertisements remind us how food driven our society has become. We are always asking about and searching for our next meal. Then we eat as though it is our last meal and then announce, “I’m full!”

Have you been there? Have you ever been so full that it hurt? God has given us an appetite for food.

There’s another appetite that God has given us that cannot be satisfied by food. At salvation, God gives us a new nature that passionately desires His agenda, His desires, and His mission. His fullness becomes our reality.

  • “…that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Eph 3:19 (NIV)
  • “…and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority.” Col 2:10 (NIV)

When you receive God’s gift of eternal life by placing your faith in Jesus alone for salvation, you receive the fullness of God in Christ. You are complete in Christ. Salvation is an event where you receive the fullness of Christ. Sanctification is a process where Christ gets more and more of you.

Have you fully surrendered your life to Jesus? Are you allowing Him to be Lord over every area of your life? Will the fullness of Christ be evident in your life today?

Pursuing God,
