The Fullness of God

An astounding truth is presented to us in the Word of God. Colossians 1:19 tells us…

“For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell”

And in Colossians 2:9 Paul goes on to say…

“For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily”

To the Christian this makes sense even though we don’t quite fully grasp it. Jesus Christ is the fullness of God. Everything that Jesus did, said and thought on earth was in exact alignment with the Father and the Spirit. The Lord would say to His disciples, “If you have seen me, you have seen the Father.”   Even Nicodemus recognized that Jesus was no ordinary man.

Now that we have the complete Scriptures we know that not only did Jesus claim to be God but He backed it up with signs and proofs so that we could believe it. We are also taught further about His deity by the apostles.  While the humanity of God is not something we can ever fully understand there is something that to me is even tougher to take in.  Listen to what Paul tells us he prays for in Ephesians 3:19…

“…that you may be filled with all the fullness of God”

If it wasn’t written in God’s Word we would be cast out for even suggesting this could be possible. But not only does Paul suggest it but he goes on to explain it.  Brothers and sister WE can be filled with the fullness of God. WOW!! I know this week my mind is going to be wrestling with all that this truth means in my life but just to meditate on the magnitude of what God has done for us should cause us to worship Him.

Praise to the Lord who has done wonderful things for us. Only to Him be glory and majesty and praise!
