 The Fullness

Some thoughts and scriptures that stood out to me when reading the word today, and really something that I think we need to pray about, the fullness of God in me...

FULL'NESS, n. [from full.]

1. The state of being filled, so as to leave no part vacant.

2. The state of abounding or being in great plenty; abundance.

3. Completeness; the state of a thing in which nothing is wanted; perfection.

In thy presence is fullness of joy. Psa 16.

4. Repletion; satiety; as from intemperance.

5. Repletion of vessels; as fullness of blood.

6. Plenty; wealth; affluence.

7. Struggling perturbation; swelling; as the fullness of the heart.

8. Largeness; extent.

There wanted the fullness of a plot, and variety of characters to form it as it ought.

9. Loudness; force of sound, such as fills the ear.

Eph 1:22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
Eph 1:23 Which is his body, the [b]fulness[/b]of him that filleth all in all.

the church....

Eph 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
Eph 3:18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
Eph 3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the [b]fulness[/b]of God.
Eph 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

together with the saints we may know the fullness...

Eph 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
Eph 4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Eph 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the [b]fulness[/b] of Christ:
Eph 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
Eph 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

Unity of the faith....(v.13)

and this same word 'fullness' we find also here

Joh 1:16 For of His [b]fullness[/b] we have all received, and grace upon grace. [i]Nasb[/i]

How is it with me? do I know anything of the [b]fullness[/b] of Christ in my life? do you?

Quote: 'The state of being filled, so as to leave no vacant part'

Sometimes I feel like a motel, so many 'Vacancies'.

But, thanks to God, He grants strength to the weak, to those who wait upon the Lord.

God bless.

 Re: The Fullness

"But God has revealed it to us by His Spirit.
The Spirit searches all things, even the deep
things of God." 1 Cor. 2:10

The Spirit of God in a man's bosom searches
the deep things of God, so as to lead him into
a spiritual and experimental knowledge of them.

What depths do we sometimes see in a single
text of Scripture as opened to the understanding,
or applied to the heart?

What a depth in the blood of Christ—how it
"cleanses from all sin,"—even millions of millions
of the foulest sins of the foulest sinners!

What a depth in His bleeding, dying love,
that could stoop so low to lift us so high!

What a depth in His pity and compassion to extend
itself to such guilty, vile transgressors as we are!

What depth in His rich, free, and sovereign grace,
that it should super-abound over all our aggravated
iniquities, enormities, and vile abominations!

What depth in His sufferings—that He should have
voluntarily put Himself under such a load of guilt,
such outbreakings of the wrath of God—as He felt
in His holy soul when He stood in our place to
redeem poor sinners from the bottomless pit—that
those who deserved hell, should be lifted up into
the enjoyment of heaven!
