Memorable Scripture: Complete in Him

Colossians 2:10 …you are complete in Him

It’s only a portion of a verse but it speaks volumes to me.

I first ran across these words in 1998, right before starting the church.

I stopped and read it again.

I meditated upon those words over and over.

My life is full of things compiled through the years.

Like you, Linda and I have a home filled with furniture, appliances, and electronics.

Sometimes we replaced broken items but most of the time we just wanted something new.

Our house and lives would not be complete without a new 60” TV or side-by-side refrigerator.

Recently I thought a new lawn mower would really improve my life, even though the old one is still working.

I can go on and on with things I have replaced.

But I have never replaced Jesus as my Lord and Savior.

When it comes down to it, someday I will leave all the other things behind. You can’t take it with you.

Jesus is with me no matter where I am or go.

And when the time comes to leave the other things behind, I still have Jesus with me.

I am complete in Him.
