People seek fulfillment in many things: a career, a spouse, income. We are constantly searching for fulfillment. But can any of these things truly satisfy us forever? You can lose your job. Marriage is hard, and income is always in flux, especially these days.

In Colossians 2:9-10, Paul shares the one thing that can satisfy us completely. He writes, “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.” Jesus is made complete by God the Father, and those who believe in Jesus are complete in Him. Jesus is all that matters. He completes us. Nothing else can fulfill us.

The completeness that comes from knowing Jesus changes us forever. Paul says verse 11, “In him you were also circumcised, in the putting off of the sinful nature, not with a circumcision done by the hands of men but with the circumcision done by Christ.” When Christ completes us, we don’t just see our behavior change. Our hearts are radically altered.

Before Jesus, we were hollow, seeking to be filled. But when He enters our lives, we become new creations, complete only in Him.
