Wholeness can be described as “lacking nothing.” In Jesus Christ, we are made complete. We are made whole. In Christ alone, we find peace, solitude, and are made complete.

How have you sought wholeness?

As hard as it is to ask such a question, it is harder to answer. For many of us, we have sought wholeness in the world. We have sought friends, money, a promising career, or an updated relationship status, in order to be made whole. But, the truth is – we can have all of these things and much more, and still lack wholeness. The nagging place in our spirit that screams for wholeness, is still there. We will still be left craving the one thing we desperately seek – to be made whole. To find out who we were meant to be.

In our lives, we all seek ways to convert our broken pieces into wholeness. The question is: “Where are we seeking wholeness?”

The God of the universe wants to impact our lives, through His Word. He wants us to know the answer to the questions we seek. He wants us to find what our souls crave the most – wholeness.

In Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority… (Col. 2:10)

The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing (Ps. 23:1).

He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds (Ps. 147:3).

God, through His Son Jesus Christ, comes to bring us into a place of wholeness. We don’t need to stay incomplete. Jesus Christ came to give us wholeness. The One we have been seeking for, He has come. He has risen! He is King. He is holding us together.

Again, I ask:

Where are you seeking wholeness?

We can know we are broken.

We can know that we desperately seek wholeness.

But, where will we turn?

Jesus Christ has come to give us a beautiful life, and it begins with choosing to follow Him. Jesus Christ came, so we might be made whole. He came, to restore what has been broken by sin and this world. He came to give you new life, found in Jesus Christ alone!
