Unlimited: There is Fullness in Christ
Apr 1, 2020 649
And of his fullness we have all we received (John 1:16, NKJV).
These words tell us that there is a fullness in Christ.
There is a fullness of essential Deity, for “in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead.”
There is a fullness of perfect manhood, for in Him, bodily, that Godhead was revealed.
There is a fullness of atoning efficacy in Christ’s blood, for “the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”
There is a fullness of justifying righteousness in His life, for “there is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus” …
There is a fullness of victory in His death, for through death He destroyed him that had the power of death, that is the devil.
There is a fullness of efficacy in His resurrection from the dead, for by it “we are begotten again unto a lively hope” …
There is a fullness of blessings of every sort and shape; a fullness of grace to pardon, of grace to regenerate, of grace to sanctify, of grace to preserve, and of grace to perfect.
There is… a fullness which is impossible to survey, much less to explore… This “fullness” is inexhaustible, and is treasured up where all the needy may reach it, even in Jesus, Immanuel—God with us.
– Charles Spurgeon (adapted)
Eli’s Reflection: This fullness that there is in Christ means that he is all you need. Think of an area in your life where you think you lack something. Turn to Christ and ask him to fill it.
