One Month to Love | Day 29

“For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority.”  Colossians 2:9-10 (NIV)

Does it seem like some people have “more of God” than you do?  I’ve heard preachers say, “You just need more of God!”  Then they offer their formula or experience for getting more of God.  The refreshing truth of this passage is that God has given you and me fullness in Christ.  The Amplified version puts it like this:

For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature]. And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—and reach full spiritual stature]….”

Just as all the fullness of the Deity lived in Christ in bodily form, so we are complete in Christ and have received fullness of life in Him.  Simply put, all there is of God is available to the boy, girl, man or woman who is available to all there is of God, and that’s all that it takes!  How awesome is that?  The question is not one of how much of God you have, but how available to God are you?  Meditate on this passage today.  Read it over several times until you can wrap your mind around its amazing truth.  


As your read it out loud again, make yourself fully available to His fullness in you.  Experience what it means to be restfully available and instantly obedient to His presence and purposes in your life throughout the day.
