Colossians 2:9-10 (NET)
For in him all the fullness of deity lives in bodily form,
and you have been filled in him, who is the head over every ruler and authority.
When Sola wanted to be free from the demonic powers that held him bound since his university days, he decided to call upon the name of the Lord and be saved. Even though he had always known that Jesus could save him, he thought becoming a believer in Christ would take away from him and make his life miserable. “No more partying, no more hanging out and fun, etc”. But the opposite was the case. After receiving the Lord Jesus, the emptiness in his soul vanished and he started feeling complete and filled. He discovered that he no longer needed alcohol, drugs, partying, etc. to feel complete. All those things never really made him complete, but only plunged him deeper into darkness. His fellowship with Christ through [fellowship with] the Holy Spirit and with brethren was more filling and fulfilling than anything he had explored before.
One of the biggest deceptions of the devil to the people in the world is that if they accept the Lord Jesus, they would be forsaking a full and exciting life for a life that would be empty, dull and dreary. But the opposite is the case. No matter how many accomplishments a man has or how far he explores in the world, he would always feel empty without Christ. No matter how much a man tries to satisfy his flesh with pleasures, he would be left empty. It is only in Christ that a human being can find completeness and purpose. Man was created in the image of God. It is only Christ who is the fullness of the Godhead bodily that can fill man.
Go into today remembering that that old feeling if emptiness cannot be the portion of a person who abides in Christ. In Christ lies the fullness of the Godhead body, and you are filled in Him. No more emptiness. Glory to Jesus!
Prayer: Heavenly Father, Help me to appreciate and make the most of the fact that I am filled and complete in you.
