Are You Experiencing the Infinite Fullness of Jesus?
Experiencing the Fullness of Christ in Your Daily Walk with God
by Veritas Vita 777
“There is infinite fullness in Jesus Christ.” – J.C. Ryle
For I want you to know what a great conflict[a] I have for you and those in Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh, 2 that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, [b]both of the Father and of Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4 Now this I say lest anyone should deceive you with persuasive words. 5 For though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing [c]to see your good order and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ. 6 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, 7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding [d]in it with thanksgiving. 8 Beware lest anyone [e]cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead [f]bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all [g]principality and power. (Col. 2:1-10, NKJV)
As a believer, you have received Jesus Christ as Lord of your life. Paul instructs the believers in verse 6 to walk with Him (Jesus) since they have received Him in their heart. Paul uses the following words to depict how the believers are filled with the fullness of Christ in their lives – daily growing in their walk with God.
Rooted – This is a completed action. Believers have been rooted in Jesus.
Built Up – These two words are past tense. The believer has been rooted and built up in Jesus. It is done. But, that is the foundation for continual growth.
Established – This is a complete action. Yet, you should continue to grow in your faith in God daily as you commune with Him in prayer and Bible reading.
Abounding – This is a present tense term. As you are rooted, built up, and established in the Lord—that should cultivate thanksgiving in your heart.
If you need reassurance of God’s fullness in your life, I encourage you to read over this passage from Colossians several times. Meditate on it. Absorb all the verses into your heart. Ask God to give you revelation of the meaning of this passage.
“If we are in Christ, then all the fullness of God dwells in us. We are ‘complete in Him.’ If we have Christ, there is nothing more of God’s presence and reality to receive. To search for something more of God outside of Christ is a vain search.” – Dr. David Jeremiah
