In an age when many Christians seem preoccupied with their emotional struggles, their difficult past, or their supposed lack of self-esteem, some will say that even salvation is not enough for all their needs. Yet, if these people really understood the incredible things that God has done for them, their lives and attitudes would be dramatically different.
Everything we need in life is found in a relationship with Jesus Christ. “For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power” (Colossians 2:9). The word complete in this verse literally means “to satisfy,” “to finish,” “to fill up,” or “to cram full.” Just think—because you are a believer, God Himself, in all His fullness, dwells in your life.
Do you realize how significant that is? If we truly understood what took place on the day we committed our lives to Christ, we would be looking outside of Him and His Word for answers to our problems less and less. We would be thanking Him more and more for the answers to those problems, and for the power to live out those answers as given through salvation!
