A question to ask yourself today, “Am I complete in Christ?”  People ask me all the time how I’m so happy all the time. They ask me how I have such a great marriage. They want to know why I can get along with literally anyone. The answer is simple. I am 100% complete in Christ. Everything, and I mean everything, I’ll ever need is found in Jesus Christ. The world can’t tell you that. It doesn’t sell books, it doesn’t make the movies, it doesn’t sound romantic. I was complete before I met my wife. I was complete before I landed my job. I was complete before I went to college. The list goes on and on. Now the time is getting closer and closer for me to be a father and guess what…I’m complete before I ever hold my child.

So what does all this mean? It means I have a good marriage because I’m not counting on my wife to fill a gap she can’t fill. It means I’ll be happy when the child keeps me up all night because Christ is the reason for my happiness. It means no matter how others treat me I will continue to always see the good in them because Christ saw the good in me.

I want to challenge you today. Go against society. Don’t listen to those around you when this world tells you a girlfriend, a wife, money, education, fame, friends, hobbies, etc will complete you. They won’t! Jesus and Jesus alone is the only thing that will bring you 100% complete happiness. Sure we’re going to have bad days and days we just don’t have the same sense of happiness as we should. But the difference is our joy is never shaken. Our hope always remains.

Surrender completely to Christ and I can tell you from firsthand experience, THAT is where you find the person you’ve always hoped to be.
