Take 5! A Good Work
Let’s take 5 minutes and study about a good work from the word of God. Now, please get your journal and a pencil and lets get started!
6 For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. 7 For it is only right for me to feel this way about you all, because I have you in my heart, since both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers of grace with me.
8 For God is my witness, how I long for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. 9 And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, 10 so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ;
What does God promise to do for you in verse 6?
I am very happy God is not finished with me yet. Be assured, who we are today is not who we will be next year or even next month. God constantly works to make us over into the image of Christ! And you are a good work! Amen!
According to verse 7, what does God give us?
Grace! Grace to believe all things, hope all things, bear all things, and become all things through Christ Jesus!
What does verse 9 say must accompany our love for Christ?
Why does love need knowledge and all discernment (see verse 10)?
How will knowing what is excellent keep us blameless until the day Christ returns?
As you finish your study time today, take a moment to thank God for all the excellent things you have in your life. Pray and thank God for how He is continuing His good work in you until the day of Christ Jesus.
