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 – Colossians 2:9-10
The Gospel of Jesus Christ that’s been ministered to us is a Gospel of wholeness and completeness. Through this Gospel, life and immortality have been brought to light (2 Timothy 1:10). What kind of life? The life of righteousness: a balanced life of excellence, where every area of your life is perfected.
There’re people who, for example, are doing very well in their jobs, but with ailing health. Some others are excellent in their health and in their jobs, but things aren’t going very well with their families. God doesn’t want your life to be that way; He doesn’t want you lacking in any area. Recall what Jesus said to those He ministered to; “Thy faith hath made thee whole” (Mark 5:34, Mark 10:52, Luke 17:19).
Everyone who has received the message of salvation ought to experience this completeness in Christ, where you prosper in all areas: in your spirit, soul, and body. Someone might be asking, “I know this ought to be my experience, but why isn’t it working for me?”
First, for it to work, you have to apply an important principle of the Kingdom called “the mirror principle.” The mirror principle of the Word is that you see yourself to be what God says you are in His Word, and then act accordingly. It simply means acting the Word. Our theme verse says you’re complete in Christ, endorse it; see yourself as such. Make it your contemplation and constant confession. Christ’s purpose is that you be filled with all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:19). Therefore, there’s nothing more that needs to be done in you to make you more divine, for Christ is in you.
2 Peter 1:3 tells us that His divine power has already given us everything that pertains to life and godliness. There’s nothing missing or lacking in your life. Everything you require for an extraordinary life of wholeness, where you prosper in all things and in every area of your life, and reign by grace through righteousness, have been made available to you in Christ. Walk in this light.
