F I N I S H I N G
Philippians 1:6

Have you ever noticed how graduate students approach their papers, like a master’s thesis?  Even at the beginning of the program they know it must be done and it seems for some it’s like giving birth to a baby....labor pains and all.  We see a similar idea in Paul’s letter to the Philippians.

In the letter to the church in a town called Philippi, at chapter 1 and verse 6 Paul writes, “...being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”  Paul has confidence that his friends are in the process of being completed.

Like the master’s degree student, God has a work to do and it began at your birth.  His work continues in us until the day we die.  The exciting thing to me is that He’s faithful to complete everything He starts.
