Philippians 1:6 I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.
Once the Lord lays hold of us, drawing us into His fellowship, there is a lot to be done in us. It’s a process, and it’s not a linear one at that. We progress and digress from time to time. But this verse is one of hope – that the Lord Jesus who began a good work in us will not abandon that work.
Gracious Lord Jesus, we are a work in progress. No question. And some days it seems like we’re going backwards. This morning we affirm our trust in you… to make us new. Amen.
