One Thing All Lack

Colossians 2:9 All of God lives in Christ’s body, 10 and God has made you complete in Christ.

Everyone lacks one thing, we are incomplete without God.  Without the choice of being created, or whether we wanted to be created in relationship with God, we were.  That was our completeness, creation in communion with its creator.  It wasn’t choice that made that communion true, our choice broke that communion.  We didn’t chose to bring the Christ into the world or asked Him to go to the cross but because all of God lived in a human body, God in Christ could make us complete again and God made us complete in Christ.  God acts and chooses again on our behalf, that is some kind of love, though he honors our rejection of Him, and yet He still pursues, still sends, still seeks that communion once again.

  1. I actually checked google for a picture of an incomplete human puzzle or a man under construction because I needed a picture for my facebook photo to express how empty and incomplete I feel and I came across this, which really helped me. Thank you!

    • Thank God for that, I’m glad you came by, the picture expressed how I feel too but also the answers I’ve found in the Bible. I pray that you’ll have a strength that comes from God in what sounds like a difficult time in your life!
