“And in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over every ruler and authority” (Colossians 2:10).
With over 42.4% of adults in the U.S. being obese, physical health is a very real issue. Globally, mental health has reached critical status. In the U.S., alone, over 25% of adults suffer from a diagnosable mental illness. Even so, it is a mistake to divide human existence into the physical, mental, and emotional. If being created in the image of God means anything, it’s that we are the crowning achievement of his created order; designed to live in fellowship with our Creator. Having fully revealed Himself in the person of Jesus Christ, we can never really experience the sense of fulness and completeness God desires for us apart from a life moored to his Son. Apart from Him, life will always be fragmented, disoriented, and without foundation.
