I’m humming an oldie Christian song in my head that is the base of Philippians 1:6. This is one of those verses that are claimed and sometimes used out of context.
Philippians 1:6 NLT
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
Philippians is truly a book about pursuing forward: running hard after Jesus: looking more like Him. This “work” that God the Father began in you (if you are a believer in His Son Jesus Christ as your Savior) – HE, and HE alone will be faithful to bring it to completion. Your life, at the end of it, will look like what God wants it to. He is the author and perfecter of your faith. He will make you to look like his Son.
And I heard a pastor say one time that Jesus was the “most gladder” person in the world. Don’t you want to be glad? Soak in the sanctifying process that God has you on. Its a hard journey, a fun journey, and an ever-changing journey.
So be it.
