From Pastor’s Desk:
…being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ; Philippians 1:6 NKJV
We fight so hard, and most of the time, in vain, to live a life for Christ amidst all the adverse stuff that comes our way due to the fact that we are trying to live as best we can for Him, and in Him. I wonder if we (me included) will ever learn that it will be so much easier when we turn all the stuff over to Him.
Notice the part where it says “He who has begun…” We initialized nothing: He did! We didn’t chose Him: He chose us! We can’t do all the things needed to live victoriously: He already did that!
We are too weak within ourselves to sustain anything, but He will complete what He has started. We CAN do all things through Him that loves us!
