Hello again, Kingdom Queens!
Will you read with me Philippians 1:3-6, please?
I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now; being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ…
Today, consider again that processes have end dates. Remember that our God, most of all, is committed to completing His process in us. He calls them “a good work”. (Sometimes we can hear so much about and focus so totally on the process that we accept it as the extent of our Christian experience, with no end in sight. But, we have a promise of completion.)
Apostle Paul testifies to encourage the saints…then and now. This is a man God reached through dramatic means, who yielded to the Lordship of Christ, and by this point had much history with God. He shares his personal assurance and conviction about God’s ability to finish His work in us.
I wonder if Paul’s determination to fulfill his God-given assignment sprang from his realization of God’s commitment to Paul’s complete transformation. Did Paul notice God’s faithfulness complete processes, and then that make him committed to stay in processes? Just a thought…
Paul was convinced that the good work God started in each believer He will perform or finish. God will be relentless in performing the work. He will not quit His good work in us. He will continue until the day of Christ.
I offer Philippians 1:3-6 as an appetizer to the next session of Esther’s Call II. We will look at the final strategy against your revealed enemy, and it involves a finishing work. Please join us at 8PM sharp CENTRAL TIME, Tuesday, August 21st (218-862-6400, code 6360503).
May you see and acknowledge the continual blessing of God!
