The Fullness of God in You - Ephesians 3

Have you ever wondered if you are a "whole person"? We all have struggles in life that could make us feel incomplete, but the apostle Paul says we can be "filled up to all the fullness of God" (v. 19). What does that look like?


A "whole person" is generally satisfied with life. He feels loved and is able to love others in return. Difficulties and hardships don't devastate him, because he is able to go through them with confidence in God. He isn't a complainer or someone who is quick to blame others. A positive attitude guards his mind since he knows that the Lord will work everything out for good (Romans 8:28).


Being a Christian doesn't automatically make us feel complete. Fullness comes only when we experience God's love for us. For many years, I knew theologically that the Lord loved me. I even preached about it, but I didn't really feel it. Only after I took a deep look at my life and started dealing with events that had fractured my soul in childhood did I begin to experience His love in an intimate way. Once I felt the security of His love for me, I discovered great joy in walking in obedience to His will. The reason was that I knew I could trust Him to meet all my needs in His time and way.


Do you feel God's love, or is it just a biblical fact to you? If you long for wholeness, the key is to experience an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. This is possible only when you're willing to open up and let the Lord search your heart. He'll reveal what's holding you back from accepting His love.



Upcoming Sermon Series
      The negative neighbor. The critical co-worker. The manipulative family member. We all have difficult people in our lives. Let's learn how we can live with - and show love to - Those People. We will learn to biblically deal with Overly Needy People, Manipulating People, Hypocritical People, and Critical People. This series will begin on April 3, the Sunday after Easter.


Last Week:
      Servanthood is something that this world does not value, but it is what God has called believers to be. We looked at how servants are overlooked, their work seems inconsequential, and they do as they are told. What a challenging message from God!
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.


Next Week:
      We invite you to worship with us to celebrate the Risen Son of God for Easter Sunday!
