Philippians 3:6. “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.”
God will complete His good work in all believers. Confidence and assurance are two of the striking traits of genuine believers. Believers know God – Know Him personally. God’s Spirit actually lives within the heart and body of the believer (John 14: 16-17). The Spirit of God actually bears witness with the spirit of the believer, that he is going to be redeemed someday-presented perfect before God. In fact, the presence of the Holy Spirit within the believer’s body is the very guarantee of the believer’s salvation.
The true Spirit-filled believer, has absolute confidence in the work of salvation or redemption which God has begun in his life. He has the confidence through the presence of God’s Spirit who dwells within him. Personally I am so grateful for the PRESENCE of God in my life.
The work begun by God is a GOOD WORK; that is, it is a work that revolutionizes or radically changes the life of the believer. No matter what kind of life a person was living, once God converts him, the new believer begins to live a GOOD LIFE: a life of…
Righteousness, Purity, and Holiness
Love, Joy and Peace
Faith, Humility, and control
The GOOD WORK is incomplete as long as the believer lives on this earth. He is never perfected, not while a man. There is always work for God to do; therefore, God is always working within the life of the believer to mature him more and more. God is always working to make the man more and more pure and more and more faithful in his service to the Lord Jesus.
The GOOD WORK is to be completed when Jesus returns to the earth. At that time, the believer will be transformed into a perfect man and given a perfect body. He will become a perfect man who will live in the new heavens and earth with Christ. And he will worship and serve the Lord Jesus in perfection throughout all eternity.
You are that BELIEVER!! We believers “matter” to God. God will complete His work in you.
Because He is – I am
