God promises to complete the work He has begun in you. Philippians 1:6

Sunday Scripture ~ Philippians 1:6

“And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”  (Philippians 1:6 ESV)

The work of salvation is ongoing, and this is good news for those of us who daily feel the rub of our own shortcomings against the standard of “compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.”

Growth is ongoing as the Trinity cooperates to apply the fertilizer of Truth to the garden of our hearts. We come to the written Word in Christ and, by the enabling of the Holy Spirit, we hear the voice of the Father.

This Sunday, let’s rejoice that just as the Word of God is living and active, our relationship with God is more than just what God has done. He finishes and perfects us as we cooperate with him.

Blessings to you,

  1. I’ve leaned on that verse for my children and myself as well. It’s an encouragement when I think, “I’ve been a Christian for HOW long, and I still have trouble with this?” I’ll still have trouble with sin as long as I live, and I’m so thankful God will keep working to grow and refine me.
