For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
A cross without a body has no purpose and a cross without blood has no power. Jesus put all of both on the cross for us. God didn’t give just a piece of Himself but the whole so that we could have all He is and has for us. Crosses are meant for the whole, not just a piece of the sacrifice. A cross completes its cause with the whole, and when God or we give the whole there is power released for the all. Jesus set the example. Jesus gave His whole so that we could have His all and when we surrender our whole life, we give Him all of us and the is peace.
