In the Flesh



Colossians 2:8-9 (NLT) – Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ.  For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body.

If you want to know God, you need only look to Jesus who embodies all the fullness of God.  So think about it.  From all the stories you know about Jesus, how would you describe Him?  Jot down a list of words.  Yes, actually do it.

I’ll remind you of a few stories to get the juices flowing:  talking with the rabbis at age 13, turning water into wine (the first miracle), feeding the 5000, teaching the sermon on the mountainside, many healings, calling fishermen and tax collectors to be his disciples, eating with sinners, defending the woman caught in adultery, tipping the tables over in the temple marketplace, and many more including the crucifixion.

What words describe Jesus?

Do you use the same words to describe God?

  1. What a wonderful reminder of Christ and Our Creator! Thank you for sharing! We so easily get caught up in this world's philosophies. It tries its best to creep into our lives doesn't it?!

  2. When I think Jesus I think unconditional love and acceptance.
