The Grace of Becoming

Colossians 2:6 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, 7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving….9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
Colossians 2:10, (Berean Literal Bible) And you are complete in Him, who is the head of all rule and authority,
Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.
Becoming begins with knowing what you already have. Every advanced course starts with something called prerequisites. As believers in Christ and adults, we don’t start from scratch. We are new creations in Christ.
You are complete in Christ. Just like every person is born with DNA that carries instructions about our bodies and minds, you were born again with New Creation DNA. You have the prerequisites. What you need now is recognition and development.
Philemon 6 That the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
