I have been made complete in Christ
For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority; and in Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ. (Colossians 2:9-11)

God doesn’t see us the way we view ourselves, when Papa looks at us, He sees us as new creations, partakers of His divine nature and more than conquerors over our faults…..how is this possible?
Through the Lord Jesus Christ and Him alone!
Not only does God see us as lacking nothing and fully complete in Jesus, He also wants us to see ourselves this way.
To be complete means to have ALL the necessary parts!
“blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has (past tense meaning already done) blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ. (Ephesians 1:3)
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:23)
For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? (Romans 8:29-31)
