Complete in Christ

You are complete in Christ.

Have you ever felt as if a piece of you is missing? Do you find yourself trying to be fulfilled by unhealthy relationships or worldly pursuits?

As women, it is easy to become so consumed by the need for relationships and material things that we search in all the wrong places. But it never truly satisfies and leaves us feeling unfulfilled and empty.

I want us to look at how we chase our pursuit of wholeness and being complete, with the truth being that we are already complete in Christ.

Lies we believe about wholeness

Satan is the great deceiver and has been since the beginning. In Genesis 3, the Bible tells us that he was able to deceive Eve and Adam by twisting God’s words and convincing them that they were not whole, that they were missing something. He told them that if they ate of the fruit of the tree that they would know good and evil, just like God. That they would be complete.

Today, rather than fruit, he uses other things to entice us into believing his lies and turning away from the Truth. Society’s expectations and ideologies are just a part of his plot.

We are told that to be complete, we need certain things in our lives. We need a husband who will fill the longings we have for love. We need a higher income because it will solve all our problems and struggles. We need a certain type and size of home as we will somehow be more fulfilled. But the truth is that none of these things will ever make us whole and will never complete us. The reality is that there is only one thing that can truly fulfill us. And that is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Psalm 42, 1-3 speaks of this longing we have for God: “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God” (KJV).

Scripture tells us that God is the only One who can make us whole and fulfilled. God has created in each one of us a need for Him. The problem comes when we look for other ways to fill that need.

Complete in Christ

Colossians 2:10 says “And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.” (KJV).

What does this mean to be complete in Him?

Wholeness in Christ involves a transformation of our hearts, a throwing off of sin, and a putting on of His character. And it is God Himself who works in our hearts to make us whole.

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are transformed and sanctified, being made holy. We are unbound from worldly, sinful things. Theologians call this process “sanctification”, and it refers to the work God does in our lives to make us more like Christ.

How do we become complete in God? When we submit our lives to Him and give ourselves over to Him totally. Turning our lives to His control is not easy, and we often will find ourselves wanting to regain that control. But, without Him, we will feel incomplete and unfulfilled.

Live in your completeness!
