Focus on God’s Goodness-Good Work In Us

February 9th, 2024

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s goodness is found in Philippians 1:6.

The Apostle Paul expressed his gratitude to God for his partnership with this church.

He said, “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.”

What an amazing privilege to participate in the mission of the Gospel! God has a plan and purpose for us to glorify His name and to spread His good news of forgiveness and eternal life through Jesus Christ. He is the author and perfecter of our faith. The work that He starts in us, He is also able to complete.

Our legacy of faith extends beyond life on this earth. It speaks in the lives of anyone who is persuaded to follow Jesus by the word of our testimony. They will go on to be an influence for the Gospel to future generations. In that way, God’s good work in us will continue until the day of Christ’s return.

“God at work in us” reveals the goodness of God and is a reason to give thanks in the Year of Gratitude.
