Comprehensive, entire, full, perfect, whole—lacking nothing. That’s what it means to be complete, according to the dictionary. And completeness, we learn in the Bible, is fundamental to the nature of God.
Consider this resounding statement from the book of Revelation: “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty” (1:8). What a joy, and how encouraging it is, to glimpse the magnitude, goodness, and eternality of God.
Completeness is also an essential quality of God’s creation. Ecclesiastes tells us, “I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it” (3:14). Because God created man in His image and likeness (see Genesis 1:26, 27), man can’t lack, any more than God can lack. What God includes, man includes as His reflection.
