What does it take to make a person complete? Money? Bill Gates' estimated worth is $60 billion. Oracle’s CEO, Lawrence Ellison, is said to be worth $55 billion. Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd Bin Abdul Aziz Alsaud’s worth is $30 billion. Warren Buffet’s is $28 billion. Paul Allen comes in at $25 billion. But you haven’t heard any of them claim to be complete, have you? Fame? Famous people have their share of problems. Stalkers dog their steps, pushy photographers invade their privacy, and admiring fans hound them for autographs. Likely, famous people would admit they are not really complete, but completely frazzled.
The message of Paul’s letter to the Colossians reveals only one way to be a complete person. It is the way of faith. Through faith in Christ, every believer is “complete in Him” (Colossians 2:10)
