There’s that sweet saying that a husband or wife might say to their spouse, “You complete me”; but the truth is they do not. Even when we meet the love of our life and our marriage is bliss, aside from God being the center of who we are, we are not complete. There is still a crucial part missing in our heart and lives.
“And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power” Colossians 2:10
Aside from Jesus Christ being Lord and Savior in our lives we we are incomplete. Nothing we attempt to do will be fruitful, no accomplishment will matter until God is the central part of all that we do.
“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” John 15:4-5
Our lives are meant to be lived in the finished work of Jesus Christ. He has performed that which we were unable to do and in Him alone we can be complete.
“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.” John 17:3-4
“And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it : that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.” John 17:26
In Him we are complete, He came that we might live in Him. He came that we might have the love of God and His righteousness within us, the element that completes us.
“Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.” Colossians 4:12
