I am convinced of this very thing: that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Dear Lord Jesus,
The good work you began in the Philippians is the same good work you started in us, faith. Through your Holy Spirit, you started our trust in you. Like Paul, we can be confident that you will do everything you can to sustain our faith until it comes to its completion when we reach heaven. Give us all the opportunity to hear Your Word tomorrow and praise you for all the wonderful things you have done, like coming to this earth and dying on a cross for us. Through your work and sacrifice, we have the forgiveness of sins you won for us; we have our hope, salvation, and eternal life. Feed us in Your Word so that the good work you started in us will be carried out until we see you face to face. Amen

If Jesus has started something, be confident it is not with a halfhearted effort like we would do. He was all in giving up his life for you.
