In the letter from Paul to the Philippians, Paul's words were of encouragement and strength. "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) How beautiful are these words to the believer. When God begins a work of salvation in a person, he will finish and perfect that work. Thus, when Paul said, "bring it to completion", he was pointing to the eternal security of the Christian. For this is the will of God. (John 6:40, 44)
Thank you Lord that you will continue to work in us and complete the work that you alone have started. Thank you for these words of encouragement that you are with us and working in us. I give thanks to you for your love and your grace. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
