Scripture: Colossians 2:10
Colossians 2:10 says, “…and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.” ‘Principality’ is the Greek word ar-khay which means a ruler of any kind. And ‘power’ is the Greek word ex-oo-see-ah and it is the word for government. So verse 10 tells us that Jesus is the head of all rulers and all government officials. The problem is the word ‘complete’. The Greek word for ‘complete’ is play-ro-o. Play-ro-o is a verb. The Greek word for fullness in verse 9 is a noun, play-rom-ah. So verse 10 says that you and I are the action to demonstrate the Throne-Room in every situation unless we have been spoiled though philosophy, deceit or tradition. So, have we been spoiled? Has the church been spoiled? Do we think in terms of being a King? Are we prepared to be the action that reveals the God-head and therefore brings triumph in every situation? That was Paul’s revelation of Christ! What is the matter with us? According to this passage in Colossians the only reason we are not doing it is because of tradition, deceit or philosophy. Have the traditions of men made the Word of God of none effect? It is time to change the way we think!
