Colossians 2:9- “For in Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”
The relationship existing among the three persons of the Godhead has always intrigued me. Christ’s body we are told contained the fulness of the Godhead. If there were three people living inside my body…believe you me, we’d fight!
He Himself had no will of His own, but did all that His Father told Him to do. There is no grudging, no pride, only servitude and deference to each other. Were we to look for a more perfect example of love in action, we would look no further than the inner workings of these three beings that are so cohesive they are called One. Christ has no wish apart from His Father. The Holy Spirit has no wish apart from either Christ or the Father. The Father has no greater love and pride than His Son.
Just think of how much love must exist between them to never hurt each other, never offend, always be in unison and harmony!
I mean, sure it makes sense, since God is Love. But how often do we think about the love that dwells among them?
“Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doth, these also doth the Son likewise. For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will show him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.” John 5:19,20
“I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.” John 5:30
“All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” John 6:37-40
“Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.” John 14:10-12
“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” John 14:26
“But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me.” John 15:26
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall show it unto you.” John 16:13,14
Look to the relationship of the Godhead if you would find the best and most complete picture of love.
