So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ. For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.
'For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness." Let's not be confused and suggest that we, too, are little gods because we have been brought to fullness. The idea is rather that we are completely and utterly saved because we are in Christ. We are rooted, built up, strengthened, taught and overflowing with thankfulness. As I say, completely and utterly saved!
May I know and live the completeness of salvation in Christ Jesus. Amen.
