    We are to grow up into Him. While He is complete in us, we are being made complete in Him.
    His place in us satisfies the Father to making us sons. But our taking on the Christ personality and manifesting it through ourselves is the growth aspect of the believer.
    Now, here is where the Devil tricks the believer. A confusion develops within the believer over his resting in God’s finished work of Christ in him and the unfinished task of the believer learning this and living it. The believer must come to see the “now” aspect of the gospel.
    There is not a more thrilling search in the Word than seeing of the “now.” This Word emphasizes the all importance of what the Father did in the believer at regeneration.
    He fixed the believer perfect in Christ, and aimed the believer, in his walk, to coming into that knowledge.
    It was now that the Father felt the son must be. It was not later on, not someday, and not some how. It was definite NOW!
    Romans 8:1, "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit."
    1 John 3:2, "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is."

    The Father had already seen that having a son in the house and having him there indefinitely was not good enough. He had already gone through that with Lucifer. It was necessary, on His part, to do what was needed to get sons without any help from man.

    I would do much shouting for people to realize the blessing s The Father wants them to ave, right now I meet many
    Christians that tell me they hope to go to Heaven but not today or not right now. They have no idea how stressful that sounds to a follower. I have wanted to and have been willing to go since the moment of my conversion. I am unwilling to commit the sin of killing the Image of God to go Home but if God turns me off today all I can say is GLORY!
