Not Single; Incomplete

Humans were not created to be single.  We were created incomplete. We were created with an inherent need for someone else.  Nothing about is whole. We desperately need someone to complete us. We need eyes to look into and a heart to share.

Before you jump to conclusions, and judge this as a sappy overly romantic look at our lives (or the Adam and Eve story), hold up. I’m serious.  Humanity is hopelessly broken and incomplete. The thing is we were created that way.  Perfectly incomplete. And there is someone who can complete us out there.  They’re tirelessly waiting for us.  But we rarely think about it that way.  We rarely think of God as the One who wants to make us whole–the only One who can. We run from Him as if He is the one who broke us.  When in reality, we did.

We run from our Perfect Wholeness because we care too much about our half-life. We cling to what we know because our incompleteness has become comfortable to us.  A life with the One who can make us whole would require too much from us.  We run from the only One we need. “And He is before all things; and in Him all things hold together” (Col. 1:17).  When we cling to Christ, we become complete.  We become everything we were meant to be.

“The completeness of Christian character is attained when the impulse to help and bless others springs constantly from within.” {RC 234.4}
