WHO AM I IN CHRIST JESUS?

So Who AM I in Christ Jesus – my Lord and my Savior?

The frazzled mother running from one kid’s school to another, one soccer game after the other, soccer MOM, super Mom, getting home in time throw together that ever tasty meal for the whole happy family to enjoy – in between texts – to run off to a meeting, make sure homework is done, worrying about the kids grades, trying to figure out her own life?

Or what about the sandwich generation woman lovingly visiting elderly Mom to help her with laundry, her bills, her medicine, worrying about her care and then running home to her own chores to get done before she running from one kid’s school to another, one soccer game after the other….on and on…what’s this all about?

And…let’s throw you working Moms (and Dads) into this mix of trying to know who you are, worrying if you are doing enough!

All of us being pulled from one direction to another – priorities, time schedules, yikes!!

In Colossians 2: 10, those with the mind of Jesus can read with a quiet sigh:      “I have been made COMPLETE in Christ.”  Ahhhhh   Some translations say that we have been given FULLNESS in Christ.

The Light of Christ indeed FILLS our beings!

No more searching and wondering…but now feeling complete because of your salvation in Jesus!  Your sinful nature has been put off – You are completely forgiven!  You are completely righteous before God in Jesus. You are delivered from evil spirit beings.   You are full of all heavenly resources to grow in spirit with Your Lord!

You are full of the hope of resurrection from spiritual death – to have life everlasting!

Friends, In my life, I feel complete in Lord Jesus.  It’s so very hard to put what that means into words – don’t you think?

All I have to do is put Him foremost in my heart and mind, and pray for the Holy Spirit to guide me and speak to me of God’s desires for me, do all I can in Jesus name.  The Schedules seem quieter, many relationships seem softer, my time with Christians in fellowship is always truly full – I can see love in each of you – I can see Christ in each of you.

You are complete in Him.

As Paul tells us:

I can see Christ’s gentleness in you!

I can encourage you not to worry about anything, not ANYTHING because our God is in control of your life and mine, He holds us in the palm of His hand! Do you Get that image?  I love it!  Why worry?

When we are complete in Jesus and full of Him, we know that whatever happens, is in God’s hands and  we TRUST HIM with it all –  with it ALL!  We may want to take our worry back – BUT – Let go of it again and leave it at the foot of the cross of our Lord Jesus!  He’ll take care of it.

Pray! Pray! Pray! Ask and you shall receive. Lives complete in Jesus Christ are based on prayer – period.  We LIVE prayer – our minds need not be disjointed, distracted, rattled – our minds need to be concentrated in prayer, trust and thanksgiving!

Completeness in Christ brings us His peace.  Hallelujah!
