January 16 - Fullness of the Promise

January 16, 2017

Jan15For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes… God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 2 CORINTHIANS 1:20; COLOSSIANS 1:27

Winston Churchill said Russia “was a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.” Old Testament Israel might have felt bundled in mystery. The rabbinic scholars would ponder, predict and project how the promises of God could all be summed up and made real to humanity. Then, in the New Covenant, the Holy Spirit shows how.

Christ is the fullness of the promises, and indwells those who enter relationship with Him, bringing the “full package” of all the promises and their fulfillment!
