|SCRIPTURE TEXT: “So you also are complete through your union with Christ, Who is the Head over every ruler and authority.” –Colossians 2:10(NLT) |
Look around you. People are searching for something to give their lives a boost. Few people seem content within themselves. A strange and often hard-to-identify inner vacuum gives most people an uneasy sense of incompleteness. Christ fills that vacuum! As Jesus’ Person is fully divine, so we, united by faith to Jesus, find personal fulfillment in Him: “you also are complete through your union with Christ.”
When you know Jesus Christ, you don’t need to seek God by means of other religions, cults, or unbiblical philosophies as the Colossians were doing. Christ alone holds the answers to the true meaning of life because He is life. Christ is the unique source of knowledge and power for the Christian life. No Christian needs anything in addition to what Christ has provided to be saved. Some days may not feel like it, but in Jesus, the vacuum is gone; the full power and presence of God has taken up residence in your mind and heart. You are a new person equipped for life and satisfied in God. Take some risks-God will guide you. Give more generously-God will supply. Love more freely-God will energize you. Say “can do” more often-God will amaze you.
