Ye Are Complete In Him
A poem extracted from
by D. W. Whittle
Complete in Him: oh, precious word!
May we by faith receive it;
That all our sins are put away
Alone by Jesus' merit.
Complete in Him while here below,
With enemies contending;
His mighty power to daily know,
From all our foes defending.
Complete in Him, though trials dark
May often gather o'er us:
With faith and love we clasp the hand
Of Him who goes before us.
Complete in Him for all things here,
Where we the cross are bearing;
And soon for aye complete in Him,
The crown we shall be wearing.
"As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross" Col 2:6-14 KJV
