God thinks you’re complete in Him (Col 2:10). Think of that! You’ve got it all and you’re all done. You've just got some walking out to do.
But what do you think? If God’s opinion is that you’re already holy, righteous and majestic as you walk about the planet, but you think you’re something else, something less, might that affect your interaction with Him? Might that affect your interaction with others?
But when you discover what God thinks about you—how incredibly good it is—you’ll be intensely attracted to Him, and the pale attractions of this world will grow dim. He's right about you! To become increasingly convinced that He is correct is one of the most worthwhile adventures there is. It's the adventure He's putting all His effort into.
And He never changes His mind because He has the facts--He's responsible for them! That's why His thoughts and love for you never change. Never. He thinks more highly of you than anyone else thinks, and He's right.
As He increasingly wins you over to His way of thinking, your behavior will come together with who you are. And won't that be wonderful?
