“I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work in you will bring it to completion on the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6)
- The global pandemic
- Racial tension and upheaval
- Economic turmoil
- Not worshiping in person
- Social distancing
- Social isolation
God is at work in you to make you more complete. God is working through these situations to use you to be a light and hope to a world floundering. God is working right now. God is working right now in you and through you.
It is not enough to endure and survive. God has given us everything in his church and through his Holy Spirit for us to thrive.
Jesus tells us in John 14:26, “But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you.”
Because God is at work through the Holy Spirit, Jesus tells us, “Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in my will also do the works that I do and in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father” (John 14:12).
Isn’t that amazing?!?!
Are you kidding me?!?! God is at work in you and me and promises to do an amazing work in and through you. Do not settle for enduring or surviving.
The key is abiding and working with the Holy Spirit. The key is allowing the Holy Spirit to guide you and shape you.
Church, “I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work in you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.”
