And ye are complete in Him, which is the head of all principality and power.
Christ is the treasure of all wisdom and knowledge. He is the Son of God and the Son of man. In Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Therefore, today as it was in Paul’s time, no one should
- beguile us with enticing words
- spoil us through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world and not of Christ.
Furthermore, we should feed on Christ and walk with Him with the same steadfastness and established in the faith we had receive Him.
Thus we are complete in Him, even putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by His circumcision. Colossians 2:3-11.
This is the Kingdom of God within us. Moreover, this is the children of God privilege and blessing:
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory; Colossians 1:27.
Therefore, let us behold Him and become changed into the image of Him in whom dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily, and realize that we are accepted in the Beloved.

Moreover, as Paul prayed:
That the Father would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Ephesians 3:16, 19.
