Colossians 1:27 - "To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory."
When God made you in His likeness, He did not make you to look like Him. He made you to function like Him. That's what likeness literally means. When God created you, He made you to operate like Him. If you are not functioning like God, you are "malfunctioning" because God wired and designed you to function like Him.
How does God function? "Without faith it is impossible to please God" - Hebrews 11:6. God functions by faith. We were designed to operate by faith. Our potential, therefore, needs faith in order to be maximized.
Since Christ is in me, my potential is everything that is in Christ.
