~ Divine Fullness ~
Fullness of Grace (our resource) ~ “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, ‘This was He of whom I said, “He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me”.’ And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace” (John 1:14-16).
Fullness of Blessing (our privilege) ~ “But I know that when I come to you, I shall come in the fullness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ” (Romans 15:29).
Fullness of Joy (our portion) ~ Jesus said, “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:11-12).
Fullness of Faith and Power (our strength) ~ “And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people” (Acts 6:8).
Fullness of God (our consummation) ~ “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen” (Ephesians 3:14-21).
