Philippians 1:6 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:
This is one of my favorite verses. It takes the pressure off of us. He will perform it. He started the good work in us. He will perform it.
Our salvation nor our relationship with Christ is based on anything that we do. He will perform it.
Have you tried to walk away and couldn’t. Have you put aside your Bible and your church attendance only to find out that you couldn’t just walk away.
Have you been so discouraged that you just couldnâ€™t keep going and then found out that it just doesnâ€™t work for you. I have. Many have.
But then something happens. He performs it! He does something in us that simply will not let us get away. He works in us and in the middle of our discouragement He causes us to want to continue on.
He gives us victory over sin. He gives us a desire to be in His Word.
When you get down to it. It is all about Him working in our lives. That is why we praise Him so much.
If you are really saved you will see Him at work in your life so strongly that you will begin to realize- He will perform it!
