For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority. – Colossians 2:9-10
In this powerful verse, Paul sums up the most controversial aspect of Jesus Christ’s life – that He was the true God. The Greek world believed in demigods, or heroic men who achieved divine status. But Paul states that Jesus upstaged them all. Jesus did not become a god; He was God. The Colossian believers didn’t need to look anywhere else, for God’s fullest and final statement IS Jesus Christ. But Paul doesn’t stop there. We now have that fullness in Christ. If you understand who Jesus is and have given your life to follow Him, you don’t need to look anywhere else. When you are under King Jesus, you are under the supreme authority of the universe. Stop and acknowledge His Lordship over your life today!
