SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 03/14/15- “The Good Work!” (Philippians 1:6)
Premise Question: What is “the good work” that The LORD has begun and will complete in those of us who’ve believed in Him?
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. (Philippians 1:6 NLT)
For it is an established, as well as, being a verifiable and an incontrovertible, completely reliable fact, that the good work that was initially started in you, by none other than Papa God Himself, when you first believed; will continue to perpetually develop and grow within you, not stopping, until He completes the good work, of making you perfect and complete, lacking nothing, which culminates on the day The LORD returns for His own. (Philippians 1:6 PDCP)
Bottom Line: “The Good Work” is the work of redemption, salvation and eternal life! The beginning is at Regeneration, where our spirit was dead, in its transgressions and sins, but because of the work of The LORD, now we can be born again, by our spirit coming to life, through the Regeneration of The Holy Spirit, within us. So, in the Regeneration of the spirit, we are saved!
(John 3:1-3) ” You must be born again!” Our spirit is dead because of sin! Our spirit is reborn through Regeneration!
The next part of continuing “The Good Work” is: the process of Sanctification, of the soul, in which, we are being saved! (Philippians 2:12-13) A work in progress for us, but was finished on the cross! Each day we must confront ourselves and choose to die to self, with reverence and a holy fear, for The Lord! It’s a battle, but with God’s help, we win the war!
“The Good Work” culminates with: The Glorification of the body, in which, we will be saved! (1 John 3:1-3) We may not completely comprehend or fully understand now, what we will become, but when we see Him, all will be understood because we will literally be just like Him!
One more word in this little teaching, Justification, it’s the reason why we are able to experience Regeneration, Sanctification and Glorification! It’s all because of His great love for us, because of what He accomplished on the cross and His Resurrection and victory over sin, death, hell and the grave.
He became the Atonement for everyone, thereby, justifying all those who will put their trust and hope in Him, meaning that everyone who does, it will be just as if they had never sinned! Wow! Now that is a thorough and complete “Good Work”…Justification! (Romans 8:30-39)
The Lord Jesus Christ, has truly provided our escape from eternal death, for our total being, spirit, soul and body! Thanks be to God for His incredible Gift! (1st.Thessalonians 5:23-24) He is faithful and He will complete “The Good Work” within each of us! Blessings…
