Be All You Can Be

The fact that Jesus died for my sins has nothing, if not little, to do with my reaching my maximum potential.

Whoever sold me the notion that after Christ, God's plan is that I should be all I could be must have been like a salesman selling me air. I am just wondering how come I bought it?

-----
I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.”

* Refrain:
Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow


----
Colossians 2:10 (New American Standard Bible)

and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority;

Have you tried the other verse:



And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
I’ll lay my trophies down
All down at Jesus’ feet.

Jesus Paid it all…



Note: a modern version reads:

And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
“Jesus dies my soul to save,”
my lips will still repeat.



I like it both ways.

JK,

Come to think of it the modern version is what I have heard too.

According to the Bible to be in Christ is to be complete, this again requires faith because when we look at ourselves and what the world tells us is that we need more than Jesus.

Lito - I've added some more thoughts on the Godel argument over at my blog - especially since you asked!
