READ Colossians 2:1-10
Whether you are single or married, this passage has the power to equip you to be the husband you ought to be for the glory of God and for your wife. I think many men have bought the lie that we need a wife to complete us. Actually, Tom Cruise made many of us believe this in his movie, Jerry Maguire, when he said that famous line, “You complete me.” It’s a great concept but it causes us to suck the life out of our wives, expecting them to complete us. But, as a Christian, look what God tells us in Colossians 2: 9-10:
For in Him (Jesus) dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
We are complete in Him. Period! We need to let that wash over us like a warm shower. Only God can meet our deepest needs. He is the source of everything we need. He will never leave us or forsake us. He gives us fulfillment, purpose, meaning, security, provision, power, worth, confidence, compassion, love, hope, joy, peace, forgiveness, patience, faith, self-control and life.
So, as a single, Christian man, you are complete. Now you can go find a single, complete, Christian woman and serve each other out of the overflow of completeness. As a married man, now you can start serving your wife out of the overflow of God in you. This is the secret of Christian marital success – serving and loving each other from the overflow of God. That’s how to get your love tank full and keep it full.
Father, help me to realize that I am complete in You. Please continue to fill me and flow through me so that I can be a blessing to You and to my wife. Please help me to live out the overflow of YOU.
