“and having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”

Colossians‬ ‭2:15‬‬

By believing in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, man is saved and becomes the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus as seen in ‭‭2 Corinthians 5 vs 21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” And this translate to total victory from death because the major reason why Christ died for is so we can have life abundantly John‬ ‭10:10‬‬ “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” This life is eternal life and is the life of God given to man by his son Jesus and we don’t pay a price for it neither are we qualified for it by works because it is a gift and a gift is not something you pay for;Ephesians‬ ‭2:8‬‬“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:”Christ has paid it all for us.

Colossians‬ ‭2:9-10‬‬ “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:” this scripture helps us understand that the fullness of God dwells in Christ and because we also abide in him we are complete in him already; that is,he has done it all for us to be complete, all we are required to do is believe. The complete work of Christ was furnished in the Holyghost and given to man to find expression and for man to live the God kind of life which is power, Acts 1 vs 8 “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judæa, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” Our lord Jesus went through all the process and persecution for power not for himself but for us to be thoroughly furnished with power because he knew the need for power in us.

The reason why lot of us can quote this scripture “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians‬ ‭4:13‬‬ ,more confidently is because Christ has done it all and by his strength we can also do it all. We know this because Jesus said in John‬ ‭5:19‬‬ “Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise” and we know that God can do all things according to Mark‬ ‭10:27‬‬ “And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.”

Beloved,Christ has done everything for us to become God’s children and Joint heirs with him, all that is required of us is to believe and receive that which he has done for us and the greatest of all he has done is the gift of salvation and reconciliation between God and man and now we have peace with the father and we have unrestricted access to the father through Christ Jesus and we no longer live in fear but in the love of our father which has been bestowed upon us.
