16And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. (John 1:16-17)
The Christian life is not like an insurance policy that only pays off when we die and go to heaven. Every believer has now received the grace of God and the fullness of God. Everything He is, we now possess in our born-again spirits. We are complete in Him. (Col. 2:9-10)
When we receive Jesus as our Lord, we are instantly changed in our spirits (2 Cor. 5:17), but many of us aren’t aware of the change that takes place inside us. Thus, we continue to live by our physical senses and natural mind, and we are oblivious to the new, born-again part of us that has received the fullness of God.
You can’t see or touch your spirit because it is spirit. Your spirit is the eternal, invisible part of you. However, when you choose to believe what the Word of God says about you, you will begin to know that in Christ Jesus you have everything you ever need or want. His Word is spirit and life (John 6:63), and as you abide in His Word, you will begin to live more and more from your spirit.
In your spirit, you are right now as you will be throughout all eternity. (1 John 4:17). Praise the Lord! To the degree you renew your mind to this truth and believe it, you will actually experience God’s fullness in this life. Proverbs 23:7 says that whatever you think or believe in your heart is what you are.
Pray the prayer of Ephesians 1:15-23 and let the Holy Spirit reveal “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Col. 1:27).
