26 Aug Day 10
GOD WILL DO IT – 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24; Philippians 1:6
1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 • Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.
Philippians 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.
These promises apply the main lesson from Sunday’s message: God keeps His promises. He didn’t just keep them to Mary because she bore Jesus. He’ll keep His promises to you too. Because the work Jesus came to initiate is being lived out in you!
God isn’t like so many of us; a good starter but poor finisher. What He starts, He completes. Take comfort in that. Rest in the knowledge God loves you and will keep EVERY promise.
“Sanctification” describes the work of the Holy Spirit as He makes us more like Jesus. If you’re a follower of Christ, although imperfect, nothing can de-rail this plan God is doing in your life. Where do you see this in your walk with God?
