Philippians 1:6 NASB "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work among you will complete it by the day of Christ Jesus."The waiting... and waiting... seems like sometimes it can go on forever! While waiting for the power to be restored to our home, I watched as four crews from our local electric company worked tirelessly! Today's verse speaks to us about confidence in Christ, that He who began a good work among us, will have it completed!! Putting our confidence in the ability of the many who came out to restore power to our neighborhood meant we needed to have faith in their ability to get the job done. As I waited, I wondered if people who know us, have the confidence in our ability to get our jobs done, completed in a timely fashion, and then I thought about how we must put our confidence in Christ, to give us the strength and faith in Him to complete the task He has called us to?! Whether it's helping the poor, sharing Christ with a stranger, loving our wives and children, our confidence should be in Christ that what He has called us to, will be accomplished!! Stay strong in Him and He will see us to completion! Power ON!!! peace, tom
