A work in progress.....Day 25 Lent 2015

Day 25 Lent 2015

"I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ."  Philippians 1.6

Everything will be alright!  Oh I know there are troubles and concerns and I know that often times our faith seems to be wavering on the precipice of disaster; but we have a promise here that God does not abandon the work that God has begun in our lives.  And make no mistake, God has begun something in you.  The story really begins before you were born, as you were known to God even before that first breathe entered your lungs.   

For the Christian this claiming is found in the gift of Holy Baptism, where the promise of God claims us as children of God and heirs with Christ to all that God has done.   This day, claim with confidence that gift and promise.  With Paul rejoice that while the road may still be long, and while you--like the rest of us--still have lots of room for growth and spiritual maturity; God is at work in your life and you will not be left out on the great and glorious day of our Lord!

A prayer for today:  "Dear God, remind us this day that you are near and at work in our lives as we grow into your love for us and all creation.  Amen"
