Daily Bread - Colossians 2:9-15

Title: The fullness of God
Colossians 2:9-15
Key verse 9-10

Fullness.
Completeness.
Where can it be found?

It's not in people.
Bjork's song says, "How could I be so immature / To think he could replace / The missing elements in me"

It's not in food.
I know this, because every time I eat a Reeces Pieces sundae, I want more!! :p

It's not in anything in this world.
All passes away - including us. We can enjoy this life, but we should not seek our fulfillment in it, because this world is a work that has been tainted.

Ah, Colossians 2:9-10.
"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."
And Jeremiah 2:13.
"My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water."

The way to this fullness does not require religious acts or great miracles. It requires a heart that is willing to acknowledge the peace and righteousness that is offered and accept it through repentance. From then on, it's a new life. A new life where we seek one thing above all others: to know the heart of the one who loved us enough to bless us with this eternal gift.

One Word: Finding fulfillment
