Victory Vitamin Blog – Philippians 1:6

“he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” 

-Philippians 1:6 NIV

This is really good news for me.  I’m glad to know that God isn’t done with me yet.  For most of us, our journey of faith began at Baptism.  On that day the Holy Spirit was given to us and the Spirit empowers us to believe that when Jesus died on the cross, He paid the price for our sins.  Now God is carrying that work on to completion through Word and sacrament as we learn to say “No” more and more when it comes to temptation and sin.  God is carrying that work on to completion as we learn to implement the fruit of the Spirit more and more in our daily lives.  “Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” -Galatians 5  This is good news for me.  I want to be a bolder witness for Christ, not being afraid to talk to people about what Jesus has done.  I want to serve more and think of myself less often.  I want to be a better encourager.  And though God continues to work on us as His people, the work of salvation is a finished project.  Jesus completed it by His death and resurrection.  And while salvation is complete and is ours through faith, I’m glad God isn’t finished with me yet. 😊
