When you read Colossians 2:10, it says “and ye are complete in him”.
At this, we seem to become complacent. But we must read on.
In verse 12, you are buried and risen with Christ.
Let’s read on.
In Colossians 3:1 we are to seek those things above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
Seeking isn’t complacency.
Christ is sitting; however, He is not complacent.
He is forever interceding on our behalf, for He is our great high priest.
When Jesus died for our sins, it was once and for all.
Daily a priest would go into the tabernacle for the daily offering sacrifices. Before this, God gave instructions on every item in the tabernacle (Exodus 25-30).
But there was no chair to sit upon.
This is summed up in two verses (Hebrews 10:11-12).
So yes, we are complete in Christ, but not complacent. We are commanded to strive toward the goal of perfection and the continual process of spiritual maturity (2 Corinthians 7:1).
So what is our ultimate goal?
It is to be in the will of God.
It can be found in Romans 12:2 when Paul states,
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
It is also in 1 Timothy 2:4.
We know that God “will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”
Someone once said that many will go to Hell unsaved but not one will go unloved.
God loves you and Enriching Grace loves you.
Grace and peace.
