After being a believer for many years, John finds it very hard to keep on following Jesus Christ in a culture that is hostile to Christianity. He often wonders if he can endure the race of faith until the end. He was grateful that his pastor preached on Philippians 1:6 last Sunday. Finally, he realised that when God has begun a work of salvation in a person, He would finish and perfect that work. Let’s ponder the Bible verse that John understood.
6For I am sure of this very thing, that the one who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6 NET)
Let’s pose a question to God. “I know the race of faith is tough. Can You help me to endure it until I see Your face?”
Let’s practice what you learnt. Before starting work in the morning, ask God to give you strength to finish the day.
Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. Share with a colleague your experience of how you overcame difficulties at work.
