Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 04/03/16

This week’s scripture is from Philippians:

Jesus risen“…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.”     (Phil. 1:6)

Thank the Lord for His salvation; thank Him that we can come to Him each day and bow before Him to seek His face and ask forgiveness when we stumble or fall. How frustrating it can be, though we try our best to be righteous, to be shown our shortcomings and spiritual imperfections. Yet the Lord who loves us, the one who began a good work in us, is not finished with us and He will continue His work in us until the day that Christ returns. Let us not then lose heart or turn away, but let us run to Him who knows us better than we know ourselves and still loves us; let us turn to Him who forgives our shortcomings and who is working to perfect us in Christ. Let us praise Him and thank Him; let us worship and bow down.

May the Lord bless you with His mercy and grace.
