Philippians 1:6

"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." NIV

"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." KJV

We can be fully assured that the maturity of the spiritual life born in us when Christ entered by our faith will be completed. We will never be left or forsaken in our spiritual journey.

Heavenly Father, how comforting to know that we will not be left alone trying to find our way in a dark and cruel world. Help us to remember that You are always with us, working in our lives so that we will be good and faithful servants when we see You face to face. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

lip photo reminded me: Your tuReading Paul Young's new book "Cross Roads" In one part the protagonist, Tony ask about the after-life. "He scanned the room. “Here, let me give you an example.” Jack walked to the dresser by the window, on which, among other items, rested a garden pot. In it bloomed a stunning multicolored tulip. He brought it back and sat down. Carefully he began to break away the dirt, gently so as not to injure the plant, until he revealed the bulb, the stem, and flower above. “This is a classical parrot tulip,” he explained, “grown right in your own backyard. Notice”— he leaned in so Tony could look closely—“ these extraordinary petals. They are feathery and twisted, fringes of scalloped edges that curl around a variety of colors, gold and apricot and bluish-purple. Look, there are even ravines of green that run through the yellows. Magnificent! “Now look here, Tony, at the bulb that produced this wondrous flower. It looks like an old piece of wood or clod of dirt, something that one would discard if one didn’t know better. It really is nothing to look at, nothing that would draw your attention, utterly common. This root, Tony…” Jack was animated, now carefully replanting it in the pot, moving and packing the soil with tender care. “This root is the life-before, everything you know and experience rippled as it is with foretastes of something else, something more. And within what you know and experience, all part of the root, you find hints of the flower— in music and art and story and family and laughter and discovery and innovation and work and presence. But having seen the root only, could you begin to imagine such a wonder as the flower? There will be a moment, Tony, when you finally see the flower, and in that moment everything about the root will make utter and complete sense. That moment is the life-after.”
