Some Challenges from Colossians! (Part 2)

17 Jan

In our study of the epistle to the Colossians, we take a quick look at chapter two this morning.

The concept of fullness comes up again in this second chapter. As he “contends” for the Colossians and for those at Laodicean, he wants them to “have the full riches of complete understanding . . .” (v. 2).

Paul continues, “For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness” (vv. 9-10).

We should seek the full riches of complete understanding in our fully divine Savior that we might be brought to fullness! Pursuing fullness today? In Him?

(By the way, Who does the nailing in v. 14?)

A Prayer for Fullness:  “Lord of Fullness, please forgive my satisfaction with my emptiness and my shallowness in spiritual things.  Give me a hunger and a thirst, Father, for a deeper walk with Your fully divine Son.  And with that fullness, give me a contentment that can only be found in Him.  Help me, Lord, to pray for that kind of fullness for those other than myself!  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.”
