And in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority. Colossians 2:10 (NASB)

Today's thoughts from today's verse:

Pastor Ben used these words to describe our Christmas series, "We’re going to “unwrap” who Jesus Christ – our God – really is, and what he gives us. We’ll find out that he truly is “the Perfect Gift” – and we won’t be disappointed!" The book of Colossians helped us begin yesterday to "unwrap" God's perfect gift to us, Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord. Today's verse comes from Colossians as well and helps us further "unwrap" God's indescribable gift. Our verse tells us that Jesus Christ is the head over all rule and authority, but this is connected with these words, "in Him you have been made complete." Why does Paul do this?

Here is a suggestion. We said we live in a fallen world. Jesus Christ was sent to reverse the fall. While he was here Jesus Christ accomplished everything necessary so that, ultimately, the reversal of the fall will come about for the whole world. Someday, he will rule with authority as head over everything and everyone. The words "you have been made complete" stand in contrast to this because for now he is doing his work of reversing the fall one person at a time. One person at a time, Jesus Christ, God's perfect gift to us, is making us whole and complete. His church is a union of people he is making whole and complete. Together they support each other in their surrender to God for doing this work in them as fully and completely as possible.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, thank you for the work you are doing at making me whole and complete. I am grateful for the support of fellow believers who share the journey with me. The provision of your indwelling presence and the support of fellow believers are great "gifts" and make all the difference. I pray that this great work of reclaiming and restoring people one at a time will be advanced this Christmas Season, like never before. Amen!
