Dear Memorizing Friends
Sometimes, probably because I am thinking of mesmerizing when I am saying memorizing, but I feel that it gives the impression that we are some group that chants mindlessly, some words that we’re programed with. Nothing could be further from the truth as we are learning lifegiving words that are enriching and changing us all uniquely in different ways.
As we move forward, I usually enjoy telling of the richness in some of our previous verses but this week I so appreciate verse 9. It explains is such a concise description of Jesus.
I do trust that you are getting as much out of Colossians as I am. If you want to realize the depth of what we have had so far, and it did not even include this week’s two amazing passages, please go to last week’s posts (Colossians 2:7-8) and read Lakshmi’s posts. I read it to my wife as she condenses the verses down with all of the major Christian terms that come out in what we have memorized so far.
Have a rich week as you consider these verses:
Colossians 2:9 For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily,
Colossians 2:10 and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority. (ESV)
Colossians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Colossians 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: (KJV)
Lord Jesus, we are utterly grateful for all that you went through to share Your life with us. The idea is too much for us to comprehend but as we go through each day that you give to us, help us to understand it more so that our love for You would continue to increase until we see You face to face. We thank You that you are our Lord - truly the Lord who wants to have His way in ours because You want the very best for us and, in turn, we are blessed because we are glorifying Your Name! Thank you Jesus, with all of our hearts knit together, praising You as we can already join in with the heavenly choir!
