The Power of Grace Ministries

August 5

You are complete in Jesus Christ. Your works or efforts for acceptance have already been fulfilled by His perfect work on the cross. 

Colossians 2:10
“10 “and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.”   

Do you want to prevent yourself from being deceived? Then understand and believe that you are complete in Him who is the head of all principality and power. One of the greatest defenses against falling away from your belief is to read and understand what Paul is explaining to the Colossians in Chapter 1:3-22. Jesus Christ is our everything; Christ in you, our hope of glory, Colossians 1:27. The second most important defense is fellowship with likeminded believers. I am not saying joining a “Christian Cult”, there are plenty of opportunities to stumble into one of those, I am suggesting finding other Christians who want to have a powerful walk with the Lord and get to know them as a friend; it’s called fellowship. The third greatest defense is to understand what the term “complete in Him” truly means. 

 The Greek word that was translated as "complete" is PLEROO, which means, "to make replete, i.e. (literally) to cram (a net), level up (a hollow), or (figuratively) to furnish (or imbue, diffuse, influence), satisfy, execute (an office), finish (a period or task), verify (or coincide with a prediction)." The word "replete" means "1. Plentifully supplied; abounding; 2. Filled to satiation; gorged. And we are all of these things in Christ. 

You may be asking yourself this question; if I am complete in Christ according to the definition of the Greek word used by Paul in verse 10, than why am I pulled so easily away from His truth and why do I have such an empty feeling inside sometimes?  For me the answers to these questions boiled down to the fact that I was not taught this truth and didn’t make any effort to search the truth out for myself by studying God’s word until I finally got sick and tired of being sick and tired. Anytime you let the fate of your walk with Jesus rest in the teaching and understanding of another person, and do not make the effort to learn the word of God for yourself by asking the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth to you, you walk in jeopardy of ignorance and misleading. Even if the person teaching you carries the title of Bishop, Apostle, Pastor, Dr., etc. Ephesians 1:3 “3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us  This verse does not say, some or a few, or the ones who earned it; this verse says “has You have been blessed with every spiritual blessing available to man and God has not held anything back. With God everything is yes and Amen to Hos children. Luke 1:37 “With God nothing is impossible”, Luke 18:27 “The things which are impossible with man are possible with God”, these words were recorded statements made by Jesus Himself, our Lord and Savior, the one who died in our place for our sins.  Review my study of Ephesians for a deeper understanding of what you have in Christ. 

Remembering always that Jesus is the head of all principalities and powers, Paul asks the question “”, Romans 8:31. Once Christians understand

the deity of Jesus Christ in that God Himself came to earth through His only begotten Son to pay the price of our sins, then who or what principality can stand against us? John 1:1-4 & 14 “1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of Without question Jesus is the head of all principalities and powers and He chose to die for our sins, so we could come to Him boldly and without fear.
