Colossians 2:10 -- On Being Complete in Christ

"And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:"
Colossians 2:10

This is talking about being complete in Christ, and it struck me today because I think so often we feel like something is missing in life, and we are looking for a way to fill that emptiness.   We don't feel like we're whole, but we don't really know why, and so we try all kinds of things to fill the void in ourselves.  And the truth is, no matter what we try, nothing works permanently.  We feel better in certain ways, or we feel whole temporarily, but until we turn to Christ, none of it can really solve the deepest problem... of needing God in our lives, and needing his presence and his assistance in our lives every day.

Today, as we're looking to fill our needs and help those around us, let's remember that Christ is what can make all of us complete, and help more than anything else.  Let's look to God to fill us and banish the emptiness.
