FILLED

In Hebrews 2:14-15 we read: "Since the children have flesh and blood, He [Jesus] too shared in their humanity so that by His death He might break the power of him who holds the power of death - that is, the devil - and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death."

We also read the following in Colossians 2:9: "
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form..."

Put these two verses together and we see that Jesus was fully God and He was also fully man. 

While thinking about this fact the other day I realised something wonderful.

When we put our faith in Jesus and we are born again, He comes to live in us: 

"
If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God" (1 John 4:15).

"
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me" (Galatians 2:20).

Think about this - We have the Creator of the universe, the Saviour of the whole world, the Lord of lords and King of kings living inside of us.

Jesus was fully God and fully man. 

And after we are born again we are fully man and full of God!

How wonderful the Lord is to make us His home, to fill us with Himself!
