Full of His Fulness

Junior Level

Paul not only affirms the full Deity of Christ but also states that we as believers partake of this fulness. Ephesians 3:19 states: "And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God."

Handout: Full of His Fulness

  1. Ask the students - How do you feel you are compared to God?
  2. Ask the students - Do you think God would be anything like a person?
  3. Describe a person who has acted like God - for example, Mother Theresa. Ask:  Does a person who does very good works seem like God?
  4. Describe the person God would want you to be. Ask: If you aren't as nice as this wonderful person, are you like God inside of yourself?
  5. What does the Bible say about God? Did God make man in His own image?
  6. Describe the joy and personal reward of welcoming God into your life.
  7. Challenge students to recognize that God wants you to do good things, but he loves you mainly for your faith in Him.
  8. Prayer


Bring some paper and have students tell you how to draw a picture of God.
Focus on how God might look.


Special explanation (for more senior groups): Verse 17 of John 1 recognizes the 
dispensational difference of those under the Mosaic Law and those under the free grace 
of God after the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. By dispensation 
is meant how God has "dispensed" His grace. Under the Law men were required to keep 
certain Holy days and feasts as part of their worship toward God. They were required 
under penalty to keep the Sabbath. They were required under the law to sacrifice 
for their sins. All of these things are in stark contrast to the "dispensation 
of the grace of God" (Eph. 3:2) which we find in the Epistles of Paul. 
Under the Dispensation of Law we find Moses praying "Yet now, if thou wilt 
forgive their sin --; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which 
thou hast written."(Exodus 32:32) We also find the answer God gave to this prayer: 
"And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot 
out of my book." (Exodus 32:33) 


Gen 4:10 And he said, What hast 
thou done? the voice of thy
brother's blood crieth unto
me from the ground
