And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.
- Colossians 2:10 KJV
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]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power].
— Colossians 2:10
Feeling that something is missing in our lives and not knowing what it is leaves us
frustrated and continually searching. We become like the people God talked about in
Jeremiah 2:13, those digging empty wells that have no water in them. We try first one
thing and then another, but nothing quenches our thirst for whatever it is that is missing
in our lives. We might describe our feelings as being incomplete; yet like the verse above says, we are complete in Jesus.
To be complete means to be satisfied, filled up, assured. Without Christ, people are
always searching, looking for something. We all want to feel satisfied. We all want
contentment. We all want to know we are loved and accepted for who we are. We may
think acceptance and approval from people will make us feel complete. However, the
Bible teaches us that when we trust in man to give us what only God can give, we live
under a curse; but when we believe, trust in, and rely on the Lord, we are blessed (See
Jeremiah 17:5-8). The joy, peace, and fulfillment we seek come from being filled with
God, and nothing else.
