Only the Beginning

God has made you complete in Christ. Christ is in charge of every ruler and authority. In him you were also circumcised. It was not a circumcision performed by human hands. But it was a removal of the corrupt nature in the circumcision performed by Christ.  Colossians 2:10-11

Being made complete in Christ does not mean that you add One Jesus to You and now you are complete.  It’s not just the God is now a part of your life and now you can call the shots and call it good.  God has some trimming to do, a circumcision of sorts, that removes not a physical part of your body but your corrupt nature.

Just adding the good and expecting Jesus and our corrupt nature to be pleasant roommates is impossible.  God has some major work to do and it will be painful.  The corrupt nature most go and the separation will be like a painful divorce though the method of surgery is surprising – baptism.
