You Complete Me.

 Where did we Get this Phrase "You Complete Me?" Who is it that we think of when we hear it?
Do we think of a Man/Woman that we are in Love with? OR do we think of a Friend/Family Member that we couldn't live without? 

In Movies, "You Complete Me" has been used to say that there is a PERSON who can complete us... That we can't live without this person because we won't be completed! ..... But what IS completion?

Webster describes Completion as "The state of being Finished."  Do we believe that we can be "finished" when we find "The right person" ??

..And the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one." Mark 10:8  

    Is this where we base our image of Completion from? ...The bible does say that a husband and wife will become one flesh. The two pieces will come Together so they are no longer two...but 1 Individual.  They are mirror images of each other.... But are they complete... Are they Finished?

Let's say there are two pieces of paper that need to be attached to each other. If we lay those pieces of paper on top of each other, as soon as we pick them up they will fall apart... So simply PLACING them together just isn't going to cut it. IF they are to be together, they need glue... Glue to hold them tight.  

  With that said--- Here's the kicker--we may see that a husband and Wife are one flesh--But what we don't see in the glimpse of Mark 10:8 is WHY and HOW that's even possible.

   Therefore, what God has Joined together, let Man not separate. Matthew 19:6

   Now this... Makes Sense. We are not completed, but we are joined! We are not "finished", Marriage is the Beginning!

      GOD has a GOAL for couples and Marriages. HE did not design people or marriage as a place where we can get all of our needs met... and isn't that what people say when speaking of completion?  That all needs have been met??!   There is only 1 way that we can be completed--and this kind of completion doesn't mean means everlasting-- it means accomplished.

.... being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to COMPLETION until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6

    In this, we can be secure! Jesus Christ is the ONLY one that can bring us to completion. 

 After all, when he died on the Cross didn't he say "It is Finished?"
