Filled with all the fullness of God

Ephesians 3:14-19 (ESV)For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Wow! “Filled with all the fullness of God!” Seems almost surreal. You and I as children of God, through faith in Christ, “filled with all the fullness of God”. Can it be? Is this true? Cause God is…well, God. There is No god, Like Our God. How then could we be “Filled with all the fullness of God”? Moses couldn’t stand even in His presence on the mount. How then could we be “Filled with all the fullness of God”? Colossians 2:9-10 basically says the same thing; “For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, 10 and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority”. Well, it starts with Christ who makes us worthy and capable to handle this infilling. Next, walking in the love of Christ causes us to be strong and pliable enough to house God’s fullness. It starts with Christ and ends with love. And not just any ole type of love, but the love of Christ. The key to all of this is saving faith. First, believe in Christ. Next, accept this infilling as your own and third, walk in love. If you’ve accepted Christ, then move on to two and three. If you haven’t then do so right now and begin a journey that will turn your world right side up.
