"And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power." Colossians 2:10
People search for something to make them feel "complete". Many women don't feel complete/fulfilled in life unless they have had a child. Some feel like they have to have a spouse in order to be complete. Others seek to obtain a certain title, status in life, education, fame or fortune. Without these, they feel their life is not complete.
While these are not bad things to desire, they are not what gives us true completeness. Outside of Christ our lives are incomplete. When Adam sinned, we lost a part of ourselves. The glory of God that was upon man departed-- we were left naked and separated from God. Since that time man has been trying to get it back-- he has been trying to be complete and feel fulfilled. He has tried to get it back on his own. He has tried to get it through all the areas we just talked about and a few more.
There is only one thing that completes us. There is only one source that fulfills us. That is the Lord Jesus Himself. Outside of Him we will always be incomplete. We will always be lacking. We will always be striving to fill ourselves up by ourselves.
If you are feeling incomplete, check your relationship with Jesus. Do you have one? Is a relationship with Him non-existent? Is it well? He is the One that fulfills us and gives us peace and contentment.
Have a great day. Jesus Christ is the only One who can truly make us complete and fulfilled.
