Colossians 2:10



10 And [kai] ye are [este] complete [pleroo] in [en] him, [autos] which [hos] is [esti] the head [kephale] of all [pas] principality [arche] and [kai] power: [exousia] KJV-Interlinear



10 and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority; NASB



In Christ, which is a reference to the written word of God, for the scriptures are often called the written Christ, and by means of the written scriptures which we study day to day, throughout our lives, we are made complete.


By doctrine we become complete.And that obviously implies that without doctrine we are incomplete.


Christ is the living word.Christ is the ultimate sovereign and power in all of existence. We have been looking, in these last several verses, at the philosophic components that exist in the world, as well as the knitting process which takes us from incompleteness to completeness.


And in all of the world, there is no system of authority or power, no knowledge either academically or experientially, that can compare with, or accomplish, what the Bible is able to do.


In all of the world there are guru s and academics, and controversies, from abortion to global warming to environmental issues, to almost any topic you can think of.And in all of them, none of them solve anything, because they are designed only to divide and conquer the human mind, distracting everyone from doctrine and getting everyone caught up in whatever the current controversy happens to be.


If you are angry or passionate about any given topic, then you are apt to be ignoring your spiritual life as defined by the scriptures. And no matter what your views are toward the weather or politics, or anything else of this world, none of them will complete your life or your person.


And as we have already seen, the world will try to divide your attention and dismantle your life, as an enemy would take his pleasures and spoils from whatever it is that you have or think you have.


Distraction from doctrine leaves you not only incomplete, but empty of meaning and purpose.


In reality, God started the knitting process of your life by starting with process by giving you life beginning with biological life from your parents, but that is not the complete you.


Then He formed you in the womb, but that is not the complete you.


Then at the moment of your birth, your breathed in the breath of life, called neshamah, or the spark of life, wherein God imputed your soul and human life into that soul, replacing your life support system from your mother through an umbilical cord, with an independent life support system called human life, at the moment of your birth.


Then you began to load your mind with your learning experiences, and you grew up over the years. This is still not the complete you.


Then God introduced Bible doctrine to you, and that began the process of building your spiritual life, allowing you to advance to spiritual maturity. But still this is not the complete you.


Along the way, during your spiritual growth, you utilize doctrine in your daily life. You become productive in your spiritual life, in the things that you do, through doctrine. This production serves to add to and build up your spiritual muscle, your spiritual strength, your spiritual faith, and accelerate your spiritual advancement to maturity. But still this is not the complete you.


One day, you will be called home by the Lord, separating you from your physical body, discarding it and leaving it behind.And one day, soon thereafter, He will replace that physical body with a permanent resurrection body.And this still is not the complete you.


Then you will stand before the Lord, for your inevitable evaluation at the Judgment Seat of Christ.There you will receive formal notice of your rewards, blessings, promotions, privileges, etc., all based on your spiritual advancement (or lack of it) from this life. But still, that is not the complete you.


Then when human history reaches its end, when the final judgments have been accomplished, when the universe is destroyed and the next new and permanent universe is created and combined with heaven, then you will receive your final award of whatever it is you are going to receive in eternity, and then you will be complete.


The ultimate completion of your life is to advance as far as possible in your spiritual life now, such that your eternal blessings will be maximized, with nothing withheld. And that will all exceed your wildest dreams and imagination.It is beyond your ability to think or imagine.


And that is what is meant here by complete in Christ. Advancement to spiritual maturity in this life, thus qualifying you for maximum blessings both now and in eternity.


Nothing in this world can match that.


But everything in this world will do whatever it takes in order to get you upset, or defensive, or antagonistic, or indifferent, or disagreeable, or controversial, and therefore distracted away from your most valuable possession your spiritual life.


If the world succeeds, then you lose.And, you lose a lot more than you can even begin to imagine.


Life is a serious matter, unfortunately most folks place more importance on the issues of this world (worldly issues or controversies, which mean nothing), than on the issues of their relationship with Christ through doctrine and all of the principles concerning life, contained within the scriptures.

End Of Lesson

Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
