Col 2:9,10. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
When we are born again we walk right into God’s fullness. No half measures here, we are blessed beyond comprehension; actually that will be the jest of eternity. We will explore the infinite nature of God; or in other words, we will search the boundless riches that are our possession in Christ. In this life, the Holy Spirit opens up to us the reality of this fullness. The question is this, how much of this goodness can you contain or appreciate in our current state? Even though we are filled with all fullness now, He must hold back our perception, these mortal bodies and brains can’t cope with His greatness. Charles Spurgeon is known as the prince of preachers. Check out his comments here and see if you agree.
“The fathomless love of the Saviour’s heart is every drop of it ours; every sinew in the arm of might, every jewel in the crown of majesty, the immensity of divine knowledge, and the sternness of divine justice, all are ours, and shall be employed for us. The whole of Christ, in his adorable character as the Son of God, is by himself made over to us most richly to enjoy. His wisdom is our direction, his knowledge our instruction, his power our protection, his justice our surety, his love our comfort, his mercy our solace, and his immutability our trust. He makes no reserve, but opens the recesses of the Mount of God and bids us dig in its mines for the hidden treasures. All, all, all are yours, saith he, be ye satisfied with favour and full of the goodness of the Lord. Oh! how sweet thus to behold Jesus, and to call upon him with the certain confidence that in seeking the interposition of his love or power, we are but asking for that which he has already faithfully promised.”
Here is the thing that the unsaved can never appreciate, it is Christ Himself that is our passion and our portion. The lost are not remotely interested. To the believer, He is amazing and irresistible. As Spurgeon says, He is our guide, our knowledge, our power, our justice, our comfort, our mercy, and our trust. But even more than all of that, HE IS MY JOY !!!!
