Colossians 2:9-10 – 9For in Christ all the fullness of deity lives in bodily form, 10and you have been filled in Him, who is the head over every ruler and authority. [NET]
The world is an empty place without Jesus. Many destructive behaviors are fueled by loneliness and rejection. Lost and hurting people are attempting to escape the reality of their despair by feasting on things that provide only temporary comfort at best. Anything but Jesus will leave the aching void in your life aching.
No amount of alcohol, drugs, money, notoriety, or sex can fully satisfy you. These things, and other worldly pleasures, will only leave you feeling more empty and ashamed. Perhaps this is your reality.
God expressed the entirety of His character in His Son, and you don’t need a telescope, a horoscope, or a microscope to find it. In Christ Jesus, you are filled with the fullness of God. Another translation says you’re made complete through your union with Christ (NLT). The moment you joined yourself to Jesus, God put everything He is in you. Wow!
