Sunday, December 8th. The First Week of Advent where we are celebrating HOPE.
BECOMINGMORE LIKE JESUS
"He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." PHILIPPIANS 1:6 NIV
The stronger I grow in faith, the closer I draw to Jesus, the more I learn to love and trust Him alone, the more disgusted, discouraged, depressed, and defeated I become over sin and failure in my life! I am sick of sin! My sin!
But there is hope for me! God’s Word promises “that he who began a good work in [me] will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” What I will be like “has not yet been made known. But [I] know that when he appears, [I] shall be like him, for [I] shall see him as he is” (1 John 3:2 NIV). Praise God!
One day I will no longer struggle with sin. I will no longer stumble and fall. I will no longer falter and fail. I will no longer be tried and tempted. One day I will be like Jesus!
