Good morning people who know your rightful place in Jesus Christ
Your starting point as a follower of Jesus is this: You are complete in Christ.
We have misunderstood and confused ‘natural perfection’ with ‘spiritual completion.’
Yes, we will make wrong choices; we will sin; we will miss the mark. But this should not be what defines us! It must also not be what derails us.
Here is the truth from God’s Word:
Hebrews 10:14 NIV For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.
The word ‘perfect’ here means ‘complete.’
Think about what Jesus said on the cross: “It is finished!”
What is this?
2 Peter 1:3 NIV His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
The greater the revelation we have of the Christ who lives in us by the Holy Spirit, the more we will realise that we start complete in Him!
Our lives simply need to catch up with this truth.
