COMPLETE IN HIM
When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything.Col.2.10 (MSB)
The King James rendition of our anchor scripture says ” We are complete in Him”, Glory to God! Christ did a perfect work in the believer, a complete one that He won’t be required to die again or even fret over the authenticity of what he accomplished. Heb.10.14 – For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.
Heb.10.19-20 – Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh,
What Christ has done in you is a perfect work, the Holyghost in you is a seal of the inheritance you have graciously received. Christ is our resting place, we cease from every labour, We are at home in Him. In Him, we are at peace, we are fulfilled, and we have arrived! In Him, We have arrived!
Phil.3.3 – For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh,
Our boast is this faith is never going to be on what we have done but rather on what Christ has done. He did the Complete work in us, putting the Holy Spirit in us to be at work in us in every way, enabling us to live out the God-life. God wants us to be conscious of this, he doesn’t want children doubtful of their place in him, children that think they are incomplete, lacking in one aspect or the other and are therefore not worthy of his love. He desires that you know you are complete in Him.
Heb.13.20-21 – Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
When we are conscious that we are complete in Him, we are able to do every good work without any insecurity, not in fear or doubt.
