Colossians 2:10 “…and you are complete in HIM, WHO is the head of all principality and power.”
What a wonderful blessing this brokenness is…where Failure’s paths and its options to stray have both been replaced by HIS footprints.
And what joyously narrow steps they are when, yet again, the depths of each imprint serve as immovable walls…securing the soul!
Reassured and re-steadied, so the earthly view of our oft fractured selves becomes one of wholeness at last.
“Complete in THEE!”; how sweet the sight! Resignation of our own steps for HIS then takes this Life’s apparent lack…and shows us wholeness from Heaven.
As HIServant reminded to view all given CHRIST’s completion at Calvary,
Devotional: Matthew 12:13, “Then saith HE to the man, ‘Stretch forth thine hand.’ And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like the other.”
Acts 9:34, “Peter said, ‘Aeneas, JESUS CHRIST makes thee whole: arise, make your bed.’ And he arose immediately.”
Now these are physical miracles of earthly wholeness. But the greater, GOD given wholeness coupled with HIS view of us…is the spiritual wholeness which the world cannot see!
Those without CHRIST as well as those with judgmental hearts choose only to see physical lack. To see only the gaps or sins in our lives and claim we live a contradiction.
They boast we can’t be complete and point to the proofs seen in our past mistakes.
But GOD! 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 “Now may the GOD of peace HIMSELF sanctify you completely, and may your entire spirit, soul, and body be kept blameless at the coming of our LORD JESUS CHRIST. 24 The ONE WHO calls you is faithful, and HE will do it!”
So! We are indeed complete and a new creation in CHRIST without lack, gaps nor any incompleteness! Should anyone tell you differently, recite the whole truth found in Galatians 1:8
“But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.”
You are spiritually complete in CHRIST. This eternal truth is found in the word, “Tetelestai!” It is finished! You are complete just as HE said! Amen and amen!
