All the Fullness

See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.

For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority; Colossians 2:9-10

 

Me:

Good evening Father!

 

ABBA:
Good evening Jon!

 

Me:
This is an astounding passage, Father.

 

ABBA:

What do you find remarkable about it?

 

Me:
However much I meditate on the incarnation of Jesus, however reverently I search the scriptures, however much I attune my heart to hear, I am still overawed by the notion that in Jesus the fullness of God could reside! Not that I doubt; more that I have difficulty picturing how such a thing as Infinite Deity could be localized in a man or plopped down in a feed trough. And, it does not say part of, or the nature of, or the essence of; it says the fullness of.

 

ABBA:

I Am Spirit. (John 4:24) The physical limitations of a body are not a limitation to Jesus. You marvel also that the passage says in Him you have been made complete.

 

Me:
I do.

 

ABBA:
This is not less than fact. He is no more limited in you than in His own body. See too, He is head over all rule and authority. As you are in Him, praying daily for President Trump and Vice President Pence, never doubt the effectiveness of that, and don’t expect to get a good progress report from the world system.

 

Me:

Thank You Father! I love You! Thank You for reminding me to keep walking in faith that You are at work.

 

ABBA:

You are welcome! I love you!

One thought on “All the Fullness”

  1. Beautiful and astounding. I especially admire how you remind us that praying for our country’s leader is not futile. Amen.
