God Is ABLE To Complete His Work...

Philippians 1:4-6, “In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 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” is my latest favourite.

While some are teaching, “GOD SAYS HE WILL COMPLETE THE WORK HE HAS BEGUN IN US. YET SCRIPTURE ALSO INDICATES THAT SOME WILL NOT COOPERATE WITH HIM,” which implies that God would NOT be able to complete the work He started in the life of others – Philippians 1, especially verse 6 gives me the assurance that the completion of God’s work in my life does not rely in my own hands (also 1 Cor. 1:8-9; 1 Thess. 5:23-24).

In fact, Paul wrote, “…BEING CONFIDENT of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion…” He was sure. He did not doubt.

If God has enabled me to see the Attractiveness of His Son, if He has enabled me to come to Him, to repent and believe, would it be impossible for Him to enable me to desire and cooperate with Him until His good purpose in my life is completed?

God is faithful. He will certainly do it.

"Yet I will
rejoice in the LORD,
I will take joy
in the God of my salvation"
(Habakkuk 3:18, ESV).
