Romans 15:29 And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of the Gospel of Christ. KJV

Definitions

Fulness c) repletion or completion.

Repletion d) well filled; plentifully supplied.

Blessing d) benediction, an invoking of divine favor, anything that gives happiness or prevents misfortune.

Gospel d) the teachings of Jesus and the Apostles.

Paul was writing a message to the Christians in Rome. He had poured out his very life for those he taught and prayed for in the midst of great opposition. He desired to visit them but that did not mean he would get to. He knew his life was not his own and wanted the Lord’s will in all that he undertook so he prayed diligently for all the Lord had for him.

What is the fulness of the blessing of the Gospel of Christ?

Ephesians 3:19 That you may really come to know practically, through experience for yourselves—the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge without experience; that you may be filled through all your being unto all the fulness of God—that is may have the richest measure of the Divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself. AMP.

The definition of fulness is completion, well filled and plentifully supplied. Paul had been beaten, shipwrecked, imprisoned, left for dead and rejected by the Jewish people. He knew he was not worthy of all the blessings he had received, but knew they were his. All he wanted was to please the One Who saved him.

That is the heart of a humble servant. He could not have written Ephesians 3:19 if he had not experienced it for himself. He knew the Lord was always reaching out to His Church. So he prayed for that fulness to overflow in his preaching of the Gospel. We won’t know exactly how it turned out, but I believe his prayer was answered.

Lord help us to be emptied out of self so you can complete us and fill us up to your fulness that we might experience for ourselves your great love in our hearts. Then we will be truly complete and filled with You. What else is there?

SUBJECT — CROSS — SPURGEON

Let all who trust in the merit of the Messiah’s death be joyful in every remembrance of Him. And let their holy gratitude lead them to the fullest consecration to His cause.

  1. Paul certainly was something else. What I mean is this. He hated the Christians, he murdered them. But what I love is how God used him anyway. Paul became blind on the road to Damascus. He had no idea that his life was going to change for the better.

    It is stories like these of how God can use even an evil person to do His Will. No wonder He is God all by Himself. What a conversion. It goes to show that God is able to change a person from what they use to be to something amazing.

    How was your weekend sis? I hope you had time to do some relaxing and that your hip is even much better today. Blessings to you sis. 🌹🙏😊🎈

    1. Yes, I am fine. How are You? Have You ever read “The Cross and the Switchblade” by David Wilkerson? It tells how he went to New York in 1958 and the Lord saved Gang Members and turned them into preachers.
      Working in a Christian bookstore I bet you saw a lot of good stuff. I just love that book.

      2. I’m sure it was good. I think D. Wilkerson was the best. His teachings have meant the most to me. I sat down and cried when he died. His messages to me were like letters from Jesus just for me. But I survived! smile, smile, smile!
