As believers in Christ, we are not lacking anything from God.
We have become children of God by faith in Jesus.
Galatians 3:26 “26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith,”
As children of God, we have received everything from our loving Father.
Luke 15 “31 “‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours.”
We don’t have to worry, the Father has given us His Kingdom and Righteousness.
Luke 12 “32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. “
Well I don’t see His kingdom or righteousness? How do I know that I have it?
When you believed in Jesus Christ, you receive the Holy Spirit and you call God as Father.
The Holy Spirit in you is the kingdom of God and His Righteousness!
Galatians 4 “6 Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.””
Romans 14 “17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit,”
God has given us everything in Jesus Christ because He has everything and in Him we are complete.
Ephesians 1 “3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace …..3 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit,”
We have every spiritual blessing in Christ because we have been forgiven ALL sins by faith in Jesus.
We were dead in sin but God made us alive with Christ forgiven ALL sins. We became as complete and sinless as Jesus Himself who is God !!
Colossians 2 “9 For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, 10 and in Christ you have been brought to fullness….13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins,”
We are now in Christ – in an instant when we believed, we who were dead, became alive and one with Jesus Christ, raised, ascended and seated in heaven.
The believer is sinless, perfect, righteous, holy, blameless, forgiven all sin, flawless and having everything from God.
We have been given God’s sonship – made equal with Jesus -as sons of God.
This happened because God did not judge us for our sins but judged Jesus on the cross – Jesus never sinned but became sin on the cross and rose from the dead to make us sinless and righteous!
2 Corinthians 5 “19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”
