The Whole Enchilada!

Sometimes it is okay to take things piece by piece… like when you have to mow a three acre lot with a push mower, or your boss asks you for a detailed report of the company’s annual budget report. It may actually be helpful to break a project like that up into smaller chunks in order to make it manageable.
There are other times, however, when you want the whole enchilada because it is most helpful to see it all at once. In today’s reading we can deduce from what Paul writes that when it comes to the matter of inviting Christ into our life, there is no going half way.

…so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (v. 17-19)

With Christ it is ALL or Nothing! There is no partial acceptance, no option to only accept those parts of the gospel that we like, and not the rest. The Gospel is not a buffet. It is more like a blue plate special where you know it’s going to be awesome, but you also know you can’t be choosy. You get the whole enchilada or it’s no deal.
