JESUS: THE TOTAL PACKAGE
Last week the Minnesota Timberwolves traded the superstar Kevin Garnett to the Boston Celtics in exchange for seven players. What does it feel like to know that you are worth seven men? Obviously KG, as he's known among NBA fans, must be pretty good. He is. He's the total package. This 6'11" power-forward can shoot, dribble, pass, AND play defence. That's why the Celtics were willing to trade seven players to get him. They figure that KG will give them their best shot at winning a championship.
Kevin Garnett may be worth seven men, but Jesus Christ is worth every person that ever lived. We know this because the heavenly Father traded Jesus away to gain for himself a world of sinners. Like Kevin Garnett, only better, Jesus is the total package. That's what the Apostle Paul wanted to impress upon the Colossian Christians who were in danger of letting Jesus go in favour of man-made philosophies they thought more impressive. Today we want to learn together how Jesus is the total package so that we never let go of him.
Paul wrote to the Colossians because their pastor, Epaphras, told him about the false teachers that were hanging around his members urging things like the worship of angels, abstinence from certain foods, and the belief that Jesus wasn't God. To reinforce what the Colossians had learned from their own pastor, namely that Jesus is the total package, Paul wrote: "For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority"
