COMPLETE!! But When??

For IN HIM (CHRIST) you have been made COMPLETE!                                                                                       Colossians 2:10

At a Friday morning breakfast, a small group of men have been discussing this Q:

When does a person become Complete in Christ?
Or –
At what point did we, do we, or will we become Complete in Christ?

Throughout the New Testament, (especially Paul’s writings),
there seems to be a great number of promises reserved for those who are
Complete in Christ.



Is it something that will only happen when we get to Heaven?
Is it a goal – Something for which we must continually strive?
Is there a possibility that we are ALREADY Complete in Christ?
Did it happen already? Perhaps…  At The CROSS?

“But”… I hear U say… It couldn’t have already happened, I still sin!

If we are still working toward it,
How do we know when (if) we’re complete?
Can I be “more complete” than you?
How are we ever to know we are “good enough” to be
IIPeter 1:4 NKJV

If it’s something that will happen only after we get to heaven,
What (in the world) do we do in the meantime?
Does it make any difference?


P.S. (hint) At what point does a blossom on a tree become a (complete) apple?
(hint)2… Is there a difference between being complete and maturity?

Please, chime in with Ur thoughts…
