Full and free! Fulness and freedom! Two great longings of the human spirit. We want to be full and we want to be free. We want to be full of goodness and free from evil. We want to be satisfied and we want to be safe.
That's what Christianity offers the human spirit: Fullness in Christ and freedom in Christ. That's why the devil attacks the Christian's fullness and freedom. How do we get and keep fulness and freedom in Christ? Colossians 2:16-23 warns of three threats and trains us, not in self-defense, but in Christ-defense.
