Know the Reality of Your Completion In Christ
Please begin this Article Series by reading Get a Revelation That God Loves You first.
Let me reiterate, nothing makes the Christian life work more than a revelation how much God loves you and a revelation of our righteousness before God. So many times, in our pop culture we use expressions that most of us do know what they mean. They may sound good, so we accept them at face value. Take, for example, the expression, "I found my soulmate." Another one is to tell your new found love "you complete me." I have no idea what either expression means, but I can tell you something very important. No one but Jesus can complete you. No one but Jesus is big enough to complete you. As much as I love my wife of over 48 years, she compliments me but cannot complete me.
We cannot and should not look to another person to complete us, make us feel good about ourselves or make us feel loved. I know my wife loves me and I feel her love. But I quit looking to her to feel good about myself and to feel loved. I am to love her, not look to her to make me feel loved. Do not misunderstand me. At times, I go to her and tell her I need a hug. She gives me one willingly. However, on another day she may be going through her own issues and is not emotionally present. I then pout or go get an embrace from God. What I am talking about is not being dependent on your spouse to make you feel good about yourself or feel loved.
Believe God loves you. This completes you. Ultimately, only He can fill all your love needs. You have heard husbands refer to their wives as their better half. What nonsense. Marriage is not two halves coming together. It is two whole people coming together who have made Jesus the Lord of their lives and obtained a revelation of how much God loves them. The best thing two people can do who are planning on getting married is to make Jesus Lord of their lives and get a revelation of how much God loves them. The same thing applies to two people already married.
To grow in the reality of our completion in Christ, we must receive His love for us every day and hear messages on our completion in Christ and who we are in Him. Refuse to look to others for your completion. As far as the Father is concerned, we are already complete in Jesus. Jesus is our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption (1 Corinthians 1:30). As He is so are, we in this world (1 John. 4:17). In Him, we are washed. sanctified, and justified (1 Corinthians 6:11). This is our completion, so keep it simple like the children's song. "Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so."
"And you are complete in Him, Who is the head of all principality and power."
