The week after I preached on “life verses”, a church member arrived before the service eager to tell me about two scripture verses that had directed her Christian walk. The first one came with a story from her childhood. The second verse she shared with me was something that she recited, remembered, and resembled nearly each day as an adult follower of Jesus:
6 I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.
God had begun something in each of us as disciples of Jesus Christ. And God is present with us each day as we bring this work to completion. We’re not finished. We are God’s masterpiece in process.
God, I thank You for making me, saving me, redeeming me, and using me to bring Your blessings to others today. Keep me faithful as I continue on the path of discipleship, following Jesus. Amen
