Jesus: All in All

Jesus: All in All
-Roy Lessin, Jesus Name Above All Names

Christ is all, and in all. -Colossians 3:11

In baseball, if one team scores all the runs, the other team is shut out. If one candidate receives all the votes in an election, the other candidate loses by a landslide. If a doctor tells you to take all of your medicine, he wants nothing left over. The word all is another way God affirms to us who Jesus, His Son, truly is. If Jesus is the all of God, it means that God has eliminated every other option.

Although it has only three letters, the word all has huge implications. All means total, complete, or whole. Jesus Christ is God's All in All.

All things are reconciled by Jesus—"By Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross" (Colossians 1:20 NKJV). And all promises are fulfilled in Jesus—"For all of God's promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding 'Yes!' And through Christ, our 'Amen' (which means 'Yes) ascends to God for his glory" (2 Corinthians 1:20 NLT). 

All God's fullness, all God's treasures of wisdom and knowledge, all God's authority, all God's power, all God's blessings, all God's promises are yours today if you are in Christ. God has no other plan, no other purpose, no other provision,  and no other person for you other than Jesus Christ.
