"But I know that when I come to you, I shall come in the fullness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ."
The Apostle Paul, as he planned his missionary journey to the Roman Christians, was convinced he’d be carrying in him and with him, the fullness of the blessing of the Gospel. This is extraordinary. Some have said, “As long as you’re in the earth, you can never really have the fullness of God’s blessing”; but the Word shows otherwise. Paul had, and functioned in the fullness of the blessings of the Gospel. It’s about your consciousness of Christ; His life and power in you. Hallelujah!
The Apostle Paul had the audacity of faith to make such a bold declaration of the Word. He said he hoped to visit the Christians in Rome to impart to them some spiritual gifts. What does this mean to you even now?
Are you aware that you can, and should walk in the fullness of the blessings of the Gospel of Christ? The very thought of it, the understanding of it, will completely revolutionize your life. Consider Peter: he also understood this and functioned accordingly. No wonder he declared that we’re associates of the God-kind (2 Peter 1:4); we belong in God’s class of beings, and should therefore live with this consciousness.
John, writing to the Church, said,
(1 John 4:4)
"You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world."
These men understood what it meant to walk in the fullness of the blessings of the Gospel of Christ. They knew what Christ had made us and they spoke and lived accordingly. The Bible says, “...Of His fulness,” talking of Christ’s, “have we all received…” (John 1:16).
You received the fullness of God’s blessing when you received Christ, because Christ is EVERYTHING! Discover Christ in you.
I've received the fullness of God's blessings, being a partaker of the divine nature. I'm an heir of God, and a joint-heir with Christ. Christ in me is everything. I'm more than a conqueror, reigning by grace through righteousness, in the affairs of life. Blessed be God!
