Fullness in Christ

“Life in abundance”, “fullness”… how long have I desired these but only found a dim shadow? What is the solution? Am I supposed to be pretending that all is well, full and complete, or do I strip back the layers and continue to cry out “there must be more”? How do I find fullness? Where do I find completion?

Lord I groan

Lord I kneel

I’m crying out

For something real

‘Cause I know

Deep in my soul

There must be more

Lord I’m tired

Yes, I’m weak

I need your power

To work in me

I can’t let go

I keep holding on

‘Cause there must be more

Col 2:11 – Entering into this fullness is not something you figure out or achieve. It’s not a matter of being circumcised or keeping a long list of laws. No, you’re already in–insiders–not through some secretive initiation rite but rather through what Christ has already gone through for you, destroying the power of sin.

How many years have I tried to get ‘in’ on the secret by being someone else, by supersizing my spiritual outfit, or by whacking myself over the head, waiting for things to eventually come right?

What does this verse say? I’m already in. Christ has already destroyed the power of sin. It’s not about me. It’s not about trying to get everything figured out.

It’s about living it in the awareness of what Jesus has done.

Rejoicing in the fullness and freedom that is there.
