“For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority.” Colossians 2:9-10
All the characteristics of Christ, as God and man, are open to us.
All the fullness of the God, however we try to comprehend what that means, is ours to ponder and experience. He can’t actually give us the attributes of God, but He has done all that can be done, because He has made
His divine power and Deity secondary to our salvation, and we have been “given fullness in Christ“.
Stand tall, friend, and behold the Lord Jesus tying the whole of His divine Godhead to His chariot of salvation! How vast are His grace, faithfulness, immutability, power, and limitless knowledge! All these are by the Lord Jesus made the pillars of the temple of salvation, and all, without any dimming of their majesty, are given to us as our endless inheritance.
The unfathomable love of the Savior’s heart is all ours!
Every jewel in the crown of majesty, the immensity of divine knowledge, and the sternness of divine justice, are all ours. The whole of Christ, the Son of God, is given to us to richly enjoy. His wisdom is our direction, His knowledge our instruction, His power our protection, His justice our security, His love our comfort, His mercy our solace, and His faithfulness our trust.
He keeps nothing hidden for Himself. He opens the depths of the Mount of God and calls us to dig in its mines for its hidden treasures. “All, all, all are yours,” He says, “be satisfied with favor and full of the goodness of the Lord.” How sweet it is to witness Jesus, and to call on Him with confidence as we seek exactly what He has already faithfully promised: “fullness in Christ”
