Completeness or totality. “The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof” (Psalm 24:1 ). Scripture sees that nothing is really complete until it serves the purpose for which God has created it. Thus Ephesians 1:23 (NRSV) speaks of God as “him who fills all in all.” He is the one who gives everything its ultimate significance and richness. This fullness is most clearly expressed in Jesus Christ ( Colossians 1:19 ; Colossians 2:9 ) from whom all true believers receive the divine life of fullness (John 1:16 ; John 10:10 ). It is a life full of joy (John 15:11 ) and peace despite the fact of tribulations in this world (John 16:33 ). See Eternal Life .
