what i'm pondering today


For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; and, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

Colossians 2:19-20

All fullness dwelling in Him -- that's a lot to think about.

It makes me think of one of Spuddy's memory passages -- "All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made."

Anything man discovers or invents or conceives is merely a revelation of what was already there, made by Him in whom all fullness dwells.

And what were your thoughts, fa?

It is an exclusive fulness. It is only found in him. Everything outside of Christ is empty and vain. It is from him that we receive true satisfaction and lasting joy.

Hmm...the ultimate peacemaker.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
