Colossians 2:9, 10 NIV
Incredible. My husband and I are absolutely amazed by these verses. They popped up as the "bible verse of the day" on our phones the other day, and we couldn't help but to sit there and meditate on them for a while.
For in Christ, all the fullness of the Deity - which is God and the Holy Spirit - lives in bodily form. Since Christ came to this earth in the form of a man, like us. So God and the Spirit live in bodily form through Jesus Christ. That's the trinity! Three in One.
And in Christ we have been brought to fullness. This is saying that in Christ we are also full of God and His Spirit. All the fullness of the Deity lives in us, too. When we give our lives to Jesus Christ, repent of all our past and present sin (acknowledge and confess all the wrong we have done), believe He does and rose again on the cross in order to give us life, Christ then lives in us. And if the Deity, which is God and the Holy Spirit, are in Christ, then they are in us, as well.
Absolutely beautiful. Mind boggling. We are so, so unworthy.
Christ is the head over every power. It's all. about. Jesus. The debate within other religions (cults) that says we can all, by believing in a higher power that may or may not be God, essentially on different paths, get to the same place - is a complete lie. It's all about JESUS. If you don't trust and believe and follow Jesus, you are on a lost, dark, empty path. It's all about Jesus. Only though Jesus. Only because of Jesus. Only by the blood of Jesus.
I have so much hope in Him!
