9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
The above verses speak of the power and greatness of Christ. The “Him” in verse 9 obviously refers to Jesus. Three aspects of these 2 verses shall make up the content of the Bible Study this week. We pray that you are blessed as you study the Bible each week.
Verse 9 is a powerful declaration of the deity of Christ. He is the second person of the trinity and all of the fullness of God dwells in Him. Jesus came to this earth to reveal the Father to lost humanity and to save them by the power of the Holy Spirit. He is King of kings and Lord of lords. (Revelation 17:14) Christ is one with the Father and the Spirit. Jesus is God!
We also learn that Christians are complete in Christ. Jesus has saved us, transformed us, and justified us. Because of these things, Christ will lead us, guide us, and glorify us in Heaven one day. The Savior meets our ultimate need of forgiveness and restoration to God. Being complete in Christ does not mean that life will be perfect or that we will always get what we desire. Being in Christ does mean that we have everything we need to live for Jesus and that He will bring us safely home.
Finally, God’s people understand from verse 10 that Jesus is the head of everything. He creates, sustains, and controls this universe. (Colossians 1:10-20) And the Savior who rules in our hearts will one day visibly rule the entirety of everything. (Revelation 2:27)
This passage of Scripture is a source of great comfort and joy to the Christian. Let us rest in the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is above all and every eye will see that one day. (Revelation 1:7) Child of God, you can trust in the Lord Jesus Christ!
