I am complete in Him Who is the head over all rule and authority—of every angelic and earthly power Colossians 2:10
I remember flying from New England to Atlanta some years ago. It was turbulent and way too stressful to think of reading. Even music didn’t appeal. I finally closed my eyes and said, “Lord, teach me something powerful that I do not know.” Slowly, God gave me this picture. I saw the Spirit of God move into my being – like He did when I was 7 yrs. old and I asked Him to be my Savior. “I am in you and you are in me,” He said.
Then He let me see what that looked like. I was like a puzzle piece that He set in place inside His heart. (It was a space only I could fit into.) I could see the edges of me, but with time, my puzzle piece began to get fuzzy…like the edges were dissolving. Soon, I was no longer definable. I had melted into the person of Jesus. We were one.
This morning on the way to a dentist appointment, I heard Alistair Begg describe the privilege of being ‘in Christ’ another way. He talked of wrapping up the smallest infant in layers of blankets. They are tucked round and round the child and the baby is not even seen from across the room. You know that somewhere in those blankets, there is a baby.
Somewhere in Christ, tucked in the many layers of God, there is you. There is me. The more like Him we become, the more blurred the lines. This is a deviation from Hebrews but something I’m feasting on today.
