“For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fullness dwell.” Colossians 1:19
All the fullness of Deity dwells in Christ!
Let me think of His Person. The majesty, strength, the purity of the Godhead are His. And, in unbreakable union with them — the sympathy, the compassion, the pitifulness of the noblest manhood. He is my Sovereign — and my Brother!
Let me think of His Redemption. There is no inferiority about it, there is no defect.
- The obedience He rendered,
- the sacrifice He offered,
- the righteousness He prepared,
- the grace He bestows —
they are without spot and without limitation. I unite myself with Him — and flawless perfection is mine!
Let me think of His Promises.
- My temporal perplexities,
- my spiritual poverty,
- the crook in my own lot,
- the cross which comes to me daily,
- my present difficulties,
- my future misgivings —
there is some great promise of His to meet every one of them.
Let me think of His Kinghood. His rule penetrates the deepest part of my being. It extends over every event in history. Heaven and earth and Hell, are fully subjected to Him. He makes all things — all things, and see that you weaken not the glorious universal — work together for my good.
What an enriching fullness is this!
