WARRANTY: “He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6, ESV) Fine Print: “…for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.” (Philippians 2:13, ESV) “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:8–10, ESV) “he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,” (Titus 3:5, ESV)
What joy these assuring promises can bring as we listen to them and allow them to fill our hearts with the joy of Jesus Christ!
—“looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2, ESV)
Today’s passage: “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6, ESV)
Did you really get to Rome or is that a blue screen? and what happened to your hair it so dark. thanks for all you are doing God bless. I like the use of future indicative sense very good!
Hey, my Jesus-Buddy Brent!
Yes, I’ve been to Rome and visited the prison pictured.
Yes, the background is virtual and I use a green screen.
Yes, my hair is underneath the sock hat that is dark brown.
Yes, I am really enjoying getting the Word out! I didn’t know how great Paul’s prison letter to the Philippians would be. Almost every verse has a positive message about the powerful results of being humbled under God’s mighty hand! (1 Peter 5:6 = Greek verb “to humble” is passive “be humbled” not “humble yourself.”)
Yes, to liking “the use of future indicative sense” as in “will bring it to completion!” We are people of certain hope—in Christ!
I noticed two similarities with God working his warrantee in us and Hebrews 10;24,25 with the “meeting together” that believers are “not to forsake”.
1. Believers are assigned to “stir up one another to love and good works”. We are all warrantee “stir uppers” to both love and good works.
2. “The day” “And all the more as we see the day approaching. This is the same day as God’s warrantee day.
We are all partners in this warranteed work of Jesus in each believes life.
Yes! We hold up the Word of God, the Bible to one another to confirm and affirm our written guarantees from the Lord’s own word. Here’s some starter verses CLICK on living in God’s warranty and guarantee.
