Colossians 2:9-11  Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ and the emptiness of the universe without him.  When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything. Entering into this fullness is not something you figure out or achieve. It’s not a matter of ……… keeping a long list of laws. No, you’re already in—insiders—not through some secretive initiation rite but rather through what Christ has already gone through for you, destroying the power of sin.

1 Corinthians 13:13  But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation:

Trust steadily in God
Believing God exists can and will help us to recover requires consistently and steadily trusting Him regardless of what is going on in and around us,

Hope unswervingly
Unswerving hope that we will overcome whatever comes our way with His help gives us confidence that things will get better.

Love extravagantly
Love never quits. Loving God is the most important command in the Bible.

The best of the three is love.
