When something is complete, it lacks nothing. Nothing more can be added to make it more complete.
Colossians 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
2 Timothy 3:16–17 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
Philippians 1:6 And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
James 1:4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
Through Jesus’ redemptive work on the cross, we ARE complete in Jesus Christ. We have been fully redeemed. We lack nothing. There is nothing more we can do to make us more redeemed. There is also an aspect of ongoing completion in our Christian lives. Jesus Christ has provided complete redemption and He is also in the process of completing our salvation over the course of our lives. Today let’s rest in and be blessed by the reality that we are complete in Jesus Christ!
