Verse of the Week: JFarese

From Keith Beauchemin via Johnny Farese

Phil. 1:6

"...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;"

Paul wrote this to the believers at the church in Philippi, but by the 
inspiration of the Holy Spirit these words are to you and me.

There is not much we can be confident in in this world.  The stock market and 
oil prices go up and down, entire countries are on the brink of bankfuptcy, and 
promises and relationships are broken all the time.

But this you can be absolutely confident in, that God who has begun a good work 
in you will bring it to completion.  Why can we be so confident?  Because it is 
God whom we are confident in.  We could not have any confidence if it was up to 
us to complete our sanctification.  God completes whatever he starts, and 
nothing can stop him - not Satan, not our sin, nothing.  you can always count on 
God.  No matter how much you struggle, how many temptations you face or how many 
times you seem to take one step forward and two steps backward.  You can count 
on God.  He has begun the work of salvation in you, and he shall bring you to 
full glorification on that day when you see Christ face to face.
