GOD WILL AMAZE YOU
9For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, 10and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.
2: 9 Again Paul asserts Christ’s deity. “In Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form” means that all of God was in Christ’s human body. He was neither another deity nor less than God. When we have Christ, we have everything we need for salvation and Godly living.
2: 10 Look around you. People are searching for something to give their lives meaning, purpose, and direction. Few people seem content within themselves. A strange and vague inner vacuum leaves most people with an uneasy sense of incompleteness. Only Christ can fill that vacuum. You can find personal fulfillment in him by letting his presence fill you. When you know Jesus Christ, you don’t need to try to connect with God through other religions, cults, or unbiblical philosophies as the Colossians were doing. Christ alone holds the answers to the true meaning of life because he is life. Christ is the unique source of knowledge and power for the Christian life. No Christian needs anything to find salvation in addition to what Christ has provided. All of us have some days of struggle, but only Jesus is truly able to fill the vacuum with his full power and presence. In Christ you are a new person, equipped for life and satisfied in God. Take some risks— God will guide you. Give more generously— God will supply what you need. Love more freely— God will energize you. Say “can do” more often— God will amaze you.Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and let JESUS AMAZE you and fullfill all your needs.
