It is Christ.

“For the entire fullness of God’s nature dwells bodily in Christ, and you have been filled by Him, who is the head over every ruler and authority.” [Colossians 2:9-10 HCSB]

The NKJV says, …you are complete in Him….”

It is a done deal … well, sort of …. Ah, Paul, why could you not have just left it there?

“Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man mature in Christ Jesus.” [Colossians 1:28 HCSB]

We have been filled by Him, we are complete in Him, but still the aim is to present every man mature.

That is the tension we live in between what God has made us positionally and what we must continue to endeavor to become practically. We have it all, but it takes all of life to learn to walk in the spiritual blessings that are already ours in Christ Jesus.

That is discipleship. Translating our position into our practice. And the world has no wisdom to add to that. It can only detract and undermine our walk.

It is Christ.

Above all. His fullness makes us complete. LORD, help us realize that truth in every moment of life. Amen.
