All Fullness of Christ

Col. 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; (KJV)

The above words exclude ALL OTHERS from this awesome fulness. This simply denies there is ANY fullness anywhere else! These words claim everything for Christ! ALL OTHERS are completely shut out. We cannot possibly realize the depth of this fulness, but perhaps we can get a better understanding, so that we may glorify our Lord Jesus more every day.

These two powerful words: “all fulness,” are placed WHERE? “In Him,” meaning our blessed Redeemer.

WHY? Because “it pleased the Father.” And we are also told for how long . . . “dwell.” Dwell = taking up permanent residence. Since God is eternal, this means eternally!

We are blessed indeed that the Father has provided this fullness for us. To try with our human effort to fill the barrenness within us, we are doomed before we start. In our nature is complete emptiness and utter vanity.

Romans 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. (KJV) We have NO merit, NO power, NO desire to produce anything good within us. Human nature is like a wilderness; barren, empty and void. We have NO fullness whatsoever without Jesus. In us “dwells” only evil, and as Satan always tempts us to sin, we have only sorrow and death ahead without Jesus.

Those who know Christ, and possess Him in their heart and soul, were once like that wilderness, but when the “fullness” of Christ filled their very being, peace and joy and hope and contentment filled us. When a person receives the “all fulness” of Jesus, a wonderful change takes place.

The “all fulness” of Christ tells us that Jesus is substance; He is not just a passing shadow! He is real! His fullness is eternal and not just a foretaste of things to come. Our sins and sorrows are real, and only real, actual mercies of our Redeemer can remedy them. Before His work on the cross, regular sacrifices had to be made in the Temple for our sins. But after His once for all sacrifice (Heb.10:10), the Father accepted His substitution for the sinners of the world. Now, Jesus is our Sacrifice, our Altar, and our all in all. The Law was only a shadow of good things to come, but Jesus is the very Image of all good things.

John 1:16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. (KJV)

Hebrews 10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. (KJV)

Col. 1:5 For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel; (KJV) It is not what we know that brings salvation, but Whom we know. Knowing Christ is knowing God. To say that our hope is stored up in Heaven, stresses the security of the believer. Because we know that our future destination and salvation are sure, we are free to live for Christ and love others.

1 Peter 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, [4] To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, (KJV) When you find yourself doubting or wavering in your faith or love, remember your destination, Heaven. Only the “fulness” of Christ makes this possible!

Col. 1:6 Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth: (KJV) Whenever people believe the Gospel, they are changed. God’s Word is not just for informing us, it is for our transforming us. The “fulness” of Christ makes us a whole new person. Only this “fulness” places us in a relationship with God the Father.

Col. 1:8 Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit. (KJV) It is only the “fullness” of Christ that places in us a great love for others that the Holy Spirit provides.

Col. 1:9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; (KJV) Only the “fullness” of Christ gives us a complete understanding of what He wants us to do in our lives, making us wise with spiritual wisdom.

Col. 1:10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; (KJV) The “fullness” of Christ is the only way we can ever live a pleasing life to God. As we honor and please the Lord, we will continually do good, kind things for others, and day by day, we will learn to know God better and better.

Col. 1:11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; (KJV) The “all fullness” of Christ is the only way we can be strengthened with His glorious power so that we will have all the patience and endurance we need, and with joy unending.

Col. 1:12-14 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: [13] Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: [14] In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: (KJV) The “fulness” of Christ gives multiple benefits to all believers when they believe and trust in Him and His amazing work on the cross. These verses list yet another five benefits.

  • (1) His “fullness” qualified us to share His inheritance. 2 Cor. 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (KJV)
  • (2) His “fulness” rescued us from Satan’s reign of darkness and made us God’s children. Col. 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. (KJV) The “fullness” of Christ disabled the evil ruler and his authority over us. Jesus shamed them publicly by His victory on the cross.
  • (3) The “fullness” found in Christ brought us into His eternal kingdom. Ephes. 1:5-6 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, [6] To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. (KJV)
  • (4) The “fulness” of Christ redeemed us; purchased our freedom from sin and judgment. Hebrews 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. (KJV) Once for all, He took Blood into that Most Holy Place, not the blood of goats and calves; He took His own Blood, and with it He secured our salvation forever.
  • (5) He forgave all our sins. Ephes. 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; (KJV) The “fullness” of His grace purchased our freedom through His Blood. Our sins are totally forgiven.

Col. 1:15-16 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: [16] For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: (KJV) Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was made and is supreme over all creation. It was through the “fullness” of Christ that everything in Heaven and Earth were created. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see; kings, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities. Everything was created through Him and for Him.

This is one of the most powerful statements about the divine nature of Christ found anywhere in the Bible. Jesus is not only equal to God (Phil. 2:6), He is God (John 10:30, 38; 12:45; 14:1-11). As the image of the invisible God, He represents God exactly in every way. He not only reflects God (like a mirror), but He reveals God to us (John 1:18; 14:9-11). As the firstborn over all creation, He has all the priority and authority of the firstborn prince in a king’s household. He came from Heaven, not from the dust of the Earth (1 Cor. 15:47). He is Lord of all (Romans 9:5; 10:11-13; Rev. 1:5; 17:14). He is completely holy (Hebrews 7:26-28; 1 Peter 1:19; 2:22; 1 John 3:5), and He has authority to judge the world (Romans 2:16; 2 Cor. 5:10; 2 Tim. 4:1). Therefore, Christ is supreme over ALL creation, including the spirit world. We must believe that Jesus is God, or our Christian faith is hollow, perverse, and meaningless. This is a central truth of TRUE Christianity. We must oppose those who say that Jesus was merely a prophet or a good teacher. “All fulness” is in Him and He passes that fullness on to believers.

Col. 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. (KJV) He existed before everything else began, and it is He that holds all creation together.

John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. (KJV) Without Jesus, was not any thing made that was made, from the highest angel to the lowest worm; from the highest mountain to the deepest sea. This reveals “all fulness” that is in Him, and shows how well qualified He is for the work of our redemption and salvation. Nothing or nobody comes even close to this.

Col. 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. (KJV) Christ is the Head of the church, which is “born again” believers. He was the first of all who will rise from the dead, so He is first in everything. His resurrection proves His lordship over the material world. Everyone who trusts in Christ will also defeat death and rise again to live eternally with Him (1 Cor. 15:20; 1 Thes. 4:14). Because of Christ’s death on the cross, He has been exalted and raised to the status that is rightfully His (Phil. 2:5-11). Christ is spiritually supreme in the entire universe, therefore we should surely give Him first place in all our thoughts and activities.

Col. 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; (KJV) Back to our wondrous text again! Christ is fully human; He is also fully God. Christ has always been God and always will be God. When we have Christ we have all of God in human form. Don’t ever lessen either Jesus’ humanity or His divinity.

Col. 1:20 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. (KJV) Only by Christ does God reconcile everything to Himself. He made peace with everything in Heaven and on Earth by way of His Blood on the cross. Christ’s death provided the only way for all people to come to God. It cleared away the sin that keeps us from having a right relationship with God. This does NOT mean that everyone has been saved, but that the way has been cleared for anyone who will trust Christ to be saved. We can have peace with God and be reconciled to Him ONLY by accepting Christ, who died in our place.

The more we mourn over our emptiness, the sweeter the two wondrous words become! “All fulness” . . . the more we see what we truly are, the more we run to the bank of Heaven to receive a portion of Jesus’ “fullness.” There will never be “insufficient funds” in this awesome bank! Whenever we go, for whatever reason, we will be granted our request. Our check will never bounce!

Col. 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. (KJV) When the apostle John saw the Son of Man in Patmos, he clearly saw the marks of God!

Rev. 1:14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; (KJV) “His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow” John saw clearly Jesus’ eternal existence. “His eyes were as a flame of fire” this reveals His knowing all things (ominscience).

Rev. 1:16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. (KJV) “Out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword” . . . here is the authority and all power (omnipotence) of His Word. “His countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength” this refers to His power and endless glory.

Rev. 1:11-A Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: (KJV) Nothing is ever too hard for Jesus! Power, wisdom, truth, purity, holiness, steadfastness, and all the attributes of God are in Him. They establish a fullness that is unimaginable to our finite minds. Also this fullness verifies a never ending abundance. The most educated and intellectual person in the world cannot possibly comprehend the special fullness of Christ as God.

This fullness that dwells in our Lord is not only inborn in His nature, but is the result of His mediatorial obligations. HOW did He achieve this awesome fullness? By carrying our burden to the cross in unimaginable suffering. He justified by His death our guilt of sin and God’s wrath to it. Also since He is God, He possesses by nature this wondrous fullness.
God the Father stored up in Jesus all the wondrous attributes and characteristics necessary for our salvation and our living a pleasing life to God. Jesus is like a bank or a reservoir that holds “all fulness” to keep believers secure and righteous.

This fullness is there for all believers to use, day or night! His eternal love and His abounding grace are there for Him to freely distribute to all the saints. All power is placed into His Holy Hands to use as He sees fit. When He shuts, no man can open, and when He opens, no man can shut (Rev. 3:7).

Not only is Christ Wonderful and Counselor; He is the Mighty God, He is the Everlasting Father, He is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6). He is the possessor of Heaven and Earth. To be all these things and more, He must be filled with “all fulness.” He is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: (1 Cor. 1:30). Do you honor Jesus and glorify Him for the fullness that is in Him, for us?

Let’s look at this from a different angle. Remember that all fulness dwells in Christ towards God and men. God requires obedience from His children. When He looks down and sees those “in Christ,” He sees His beloved Son, Jesus who has never failed (not once) to do God’s will. Since justice demands that the Law be kept; and since Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. (Rom. 10:4), we are justified in the Father’s sight (Rom.5:1). The fullness of Christ is applied to us.

This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. (Mat.3:17) Shining out through the universe is a display of infinite mercy, justice and wisdom coming from the fullness of Christ. The eternal Father is well satisfied with the work of the Redeemer, and His once for all sacrifice He made on the cross.

Hebrews 1:8-9 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. [9] Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. (KJV)

Ephes. 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. (KJV) Unspeakable comfort arises from this truth . . . for if we had to provide or perform something for our salvation, we would always be in danger, for we would always fall short! But, the Bible clearly tells us we are accepted in the Beloved. We are safe beyond anything that would stand in our way. If it weren’t for Jesus and His work on the cross, we’d have many questions such as the following.

Micah 6:6-7 Wherewith shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old? [7] Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? (KJV) HOW could we possibly make ourselves right with God??? Instead, all those who trust and believe in God’s one and only Plan of salvation (Jesus), now hear words like the following.

Hebrews 10:8-10 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; [9] Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. [10] By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. (KJV) Once for all!

Although required by the Law of Moses animal sacrifices or grain offerings or animals burned on the altar or other offerings for sin, did not please the Father. But, Jesus came to do God’s will. He canceled the first covenant in order to establish the second. What God wants is for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the Body of Jesus Christ once for all time.

Hebrews 10:17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. (KJV) I would much rather hear words like these, instead of trying and failing to give God something!

The all fulness of Christ is also directed to man, both sinners and saints. What does sinners want in Christ? Whatever you are wanting, Christ is your all! He gives power to believe. He gives strength to the weak. He gives forgiveness of sin when you repent. He gives a new heart to all who believe.

Ezekiel 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. (KJV) He gives pardon of sins. He gives spiritual healing. Exodus 15:26 . . . for I am the Lord that healeth thee. (KJV)

He gives us clean white clothing, for His righteousness is our dress (Psalm 132:16; Isaiah 61:10; Zech. 3:3-5; Rev. 3:4-5; Rev. 19:7-8). He gives us spiritual life.

Ephes. 5:14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. (KJV) We ALL are spiritually dead without Christ. He is come that we should have life (John 10:10). The list goes on and on! You can pile up your needs so that they reach the highest mountain top, Christ can surely provide them all! More than all in Him can we find!

What about the saints? A "saint" is a believer in Christ and His work on the cross. Just because we are saved, doesn’t mean our needs have discontinued. We will always have needs! Our wants may not always be filled, but our needs shall be filled! It seems that the closer we are to God, the more aware we are of our spiritual needs.

Rev. 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: (KJV) Unbelievers, as well as some believers, falsely presume that numerous material possessions are a sign of God’s spiritual blessing. What people can see and buy becomes more valuable to them than what is unseen and eternal. Wealth, luxury, and ease can make people feel confident and self-satisfied. But no matter how much you possess or how much money you have, you don’t have anything if you don’t have a close, personal relationship with Christ. Don’t center your life on comfort and luxury, for all true riches are in Christ.

Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (KJV) Let us be completely dependent on the fullness of Christ, now and forever more, for there is NO need in our spirit, that He cannot provide for abundantly.

  • Do you long for higher spiritual accomplishments?
  • Do you want to conquer sin?
  • Do you want to be more useful in your service to God?
  • Do you deeply desire to reach out to lost souls for Christ?
  • Do you realize just how desperately you need the grace of God?
  • Do you long to glorify Him more?
  • Do you have a desperate need for feeling closer to Him?
  • Do you feel you are nothing in comparison to this awesome Being?
  • Do you see just how holy and pure He is?
  • Do you understand that without His wisdom and power you would fall flat on your face even in the slightest trial?

The eternal and unbounded God gives Himself to His children in the Person of His only begotten Son.

1 Cor. 3:21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; (KJV) All things are ours through the fullness of Christ. If we open our mouth wide, He will fill it (Psalm 81:10). What an awesome Saviour we have!

My friend, even when we are at home in Heaven our need for Him will not lessen. We shall still depend on Him for our necessities.

Rev. 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. (KJV) This is of which we shall drink! And how can we possibly reign without His power?

Rev. 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. (KJV)

1 Cor. 6:2-A Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? . . . (KJV)

Rev. 21:22-23 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. [23] And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. (KJV) Not all the beautiful music of the world could make a heavenly place if Jesus were not there! Nor could many suns, moons and stars brighten Heaven if Jesus were not there!

Col. 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; (KJV) Because it pleased the Father, for all saints and sinners, all fulness is treasured up in this one awesome and amazing Person, Jesus! How can anyone satisfactorily express what is meant by the all fulness of Christ? This fulness cannot and does not dwell any where else in anything or any one! NOT in any denomination or religion. NOT in any preacher, bishop, cardinal or pope!

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV) Anyone who has Jesus in their heart, soul and life would be a complete idiot to look for fulfillment elsewhere. It’s not going to happen! If a person wants spiritual fulfillment, it comes ONLY from Jesus! Unless you have Christ, the all-sufficient Saviour as the CENTER of your worship, your religion is in vain! And my friend you cannot add anything. Woe be unto you should you try. NO rituals or sacraments or person (no matter who) is needed! Candles may burn brightly in some churches, but Jesus is all the Light we need!

Some claim to be successors to the apostles, but we follow the Lamb Himself! No matter how wise religious leaders may seem, we have for ourselves the Incarnate Wisdom Himself! Anyone who adds to the Word of God shall have the plagues added to them (Rev.22:18). Any denomination or person who teaches doctrines other than what is in the Bible will be punished severely.

Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (KJV) Where else could all fulness have been placed? Would there have been any better place than Jesus? Absolutely not! God needed a tremendous capacity in which to store all fulness. Where was there such a place? Jesus!

Isaiah 40:12 Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance? (KJV) To Jesus and Jesus alone could this honor go. To Him alone could all fulness belong. He alone could be the Grand Storehouse! He alone is the Bank to which we go to receive abundant resources.

Psalm 72:17 His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed. (KJV) ONLY in Jesus shall all nations be blessed. ONLY in Him can any individual be blessed.

Hebrews 5:9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; (KJV) Maybe the Father placed all fulness in Christ because only He could be capable of distributing it unto God’s children. Only He would know without a doubt if a person was truly born again, whereas a human could be lied to and believe the lies. We could NOT go directly to God the Father for grace . . . for He is as a consuming fire.

Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire. (KJV) But, Christ, even though He is God, He is also Man; a Man of a meek and lowly spirit (Mat.11:29), therefore He is approachable. Those who know Him, take great pleasure in being near to Him. This Jesus who was a Friend to publicans and sinners, is truly a Friend to all believers. In Him as God incarnate, dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily (Col.2:9). Jesus is NOT a myth, a dream or fiction! He is a real, living PERSON! A Person with such a capacity for love, we can approach Him with no dread, no fear! The fullness dwells in Him as Prophet, Priest and King (divine); but also as a Person (Man). All fullness is in Him entirely. Any fullness that comes from Him in His work, His gifts and His Promises is all obtained from His Person. The value of His death also lies primarily in His Person, because He was God and gave Himself for us. His own self carried our sins in His own Body on that tree. The excellence and perfection of this Person, gave fullness to His sacrifice.

Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; (KJV) The power to save anyone who comes to Him lies in this awesome Person!

Hebrews 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. (KJV) When you truly realize and see what this amazing Man did for us, for you, your soul will grab hold of Him and never let Him go! Your soul will grip His pierced Feet as you look up into the Face that was marred more than any other man.

Isaiah 52:14 As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men: (KJV) With the horrible disfigurement, you will know your Saviour! The beaten and bloodied Body was disfigured for you, for me. But friend, when you believe in Him, and the work He did, you are on that plateau where all fullness dwells, and of that abundant fullness, you shall receive.

Rev. 5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. (KJV) Praise and thank Him this day and forever more! Give Him honor that is due Him! Only He can reconcile you to God the Father! I pray that you believe this. NO one else can do this, NO one! We owe Him a debt that we can never pay. But the wonderful part, He is not asking for payment! He just wants our love and our commitment to Him. Is that too much for Him to ask?

If you do not know Jesus for the full pardon of your sins, go to Him NOW! That never ending supply of fullness is available for you.

Rev. 7:12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. (KJV) We need to see Jesus for who He is, we need to see the fullness that is in Him, that is there for us! We need to love and cherish Him because of who He is and what He has done for us . . . and what He continues to do for us day by day. He reaches out to us in our weakness with all fulness that is in Him! He reaches out to us with those nail scarred Hands! My friend, put your hand into His and you will never be sorry, for it is in Him and Him alone where the all fulness of grace dwells. You must go through Jesus or you can never reach the Father.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV) My friend, if you want to go where the Father is (in Heaven), you MUST go through Jesus!

WHY? is all fullness in Jesus?

Because it pleased the Father that in Him all fulness should dwell. God is sovereign and can do as He wishes. For those of you who don’t like this, you have a problem. We could ask a thousand questions, the answer to many would be the same. God is a sovereign God. Sovereignty of God is His absolute right to do any and all things according to His own good pleasure (Daniel 4:25, 35; Romans 9:15-23; 1 Tim. 6:15; Rev. 4:11). He is the Potter, we are simply the clay. We can make NO demands of Him. We cannot demand answers to questions. The creation cannot demand anything of the Creator.

Romans 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? (KJV) The Creator has control over the created object. The created object, therefore, has no right to demand anything from its Creator. Its very existence depends on Him.

WHY did the Father place all fulness in Christ?

Another terrific answer is that NO ONE is more fit to be glorified as the Saviour of mankind.

Philip. 2:7-11 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: [8] And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. [9] Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: [10] That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; [11] And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (KJV) Actually it is justice that the grace He has brought to us is treasured up in Him. Too it is the wisdom of God.

1 Peter 2:4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, (KJV) Since it pleased the Father to put all grace in Christ, let us be thankful. If it pleases God, it most certainly should please us! Could you with your finite mind, think of a better place than Christ? My friend, if we could save ourselves, it would take the glory away from Christ, and I certainly do NOT want to do that. It gives me great joy to know that my Saviour is exalted and one day will have every knee bow to Him, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of the Father!

WHEN? is all fullness in Christ?

Yesterday, today, tomorrow and forever! It is there ALL the time! Past, present and future! This fullness was in Christ in the days of old, and is in Him today, and will be there forever! Just as Christ is eternal, so too is the all fulness in Him. Because the all fulness of Christ “dwells” there, it is always found there. And another amazing thing about this fullness, it never takes a vaccation. It is always there! No matter what hour of the day or night we flee to Him, no matter where we are, His fulness is there to strengthen, comfort and encourage us! And it never wavers or weakens. And the power of His Blood will never waver, never weaken either when some lost soul runs to Him for grace. He is waiting for them with open arms; and His love, His mercy, and His forgiveness has not taken a day off, ever! The fullness of grace will be easily found when you seek Him. Your prayer will not be rejected.

The all fulness of Christ is never exhausted or diminished. One day, perhaps in the not too distant future, this world will be destroyed by fervent heat.

2 Peter 3:10-12 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. [11] Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, [12] Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? (KJV) Also see: Isaiah 34:4; Joel 3:15-16; Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21; Rev. 6:12-17. There shall be the same all fulness in Christ that day as the day the first sinner fell at His Feet and begged forgiveness. From eternity past, to eternity future, the all fulness of Christ remains steadfast and true. Until time as we know it exists no more, He will always possess and exercise the same power to forgive, to renew, to deliver, to sanctify and to perfectly save souls.

Since all fulness is a permanent quality in Christ, don’t you think we should take this into consideration and be ever so thankful, ever so grateful? Don’t you think we should give honor, praise and glory to Christ every day we live?

Psalm 145:10 All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord; and thy saints shall bless thee. (KJV) Let us worship Him because His fullness shall never decrease. Jesus once wore a crown of horrendous thorns. That will be no more! Only a crown of glory will He wear now!

1 Peter 5:4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away. (KJV)

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.[KJV]
