Precious Stone Devotional Meditation: June 19

"For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell" ~ Colossians 1:19
I [Eugenia Price, the author] have been writing and speaking on this verse for many months. I sit hour after hour on trains and think about it. And yet I know so little of what it really means. "... it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell."  All fulness.

In Jesus Christ. In His person. How can it be that to those of us who know Him, He is enough? How can one life fill the emptiness in every human life? How is this possible?

We cannot know. We can only experience this fulness by emptying ourselves of ourselves and by receiving Him fully. No one can tell us how to do this. Only each individual person knows what it is that prevents the complete capture by Christ. He is in pursuit. Every minute. He is near now, pressing in upon us from within and from without. He would be "fulness" to each person in the world. Fulness includes everything. And it pleasd the Father that all fulness should be in the person of Jesus Christ, His Son. In him is everything we ever need. Our part is to "learn of" Him.

"In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge."
