An Incomplete, Complete Mess | Word For Life Says

Incomplete really speaks to the idea that I, we, us, don’t really have it all together like we think we do at times.  We often feel so short from where we need to be; from where God wants us that we can sense a dragging of lack in our spirits.  If we were really honest with ourselves we would see within us the deficit our humanity brings without any real way of adding up to that holy mark of perfection our soul so desperately longs for.  If left to ourselves and our own ingenuity we would find that we are an incomplete mess.

But, thanks be to God that our completeness is not dependent upon us.  Rather, it is in Christ alone where we find everything that makes us one hundred percent whole in Him.  In our relationship with Jesus as our Savior, there is no lack.  The Bible assures us, “And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:” (Colossians 2:10).  On the cross, Jesus secured everything we need to have a full relationship with God Almighty, leaving nothing out.  Jesus Christ really does become more than enough for believers to rest in His salvation.  Through Calvary’s sacrifice, Jesus turned our incomplete mess into something completely beautiful.

We may feel like we’re not there yet, but we are being renewed day by day (2 Corinthians 4:17).  Like a caterpillar in transition to becoming a butterfly, I can’t wait to see the beautiful end results of what we all will be in Christ Jesus.

More encouraging verses:

2 Corinthians 3:5 “Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God.”

John 1:16 “And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.”

Colossians 1:19 “For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell.”
