Being Confident Pastor Billy Robertson 13 March 2016
Philippians 1:6 says it all..."Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ"... When we trust in the Lord Jesus, we should turn everything over to Him. The work on the cross, that day He paid our debt to our Creator, was the beginning of the work done in each of us. His willingness to buy us out of the slave market of sin has less to do with how important we are, and everything to do with His choice to love us. It was and is the measure of His love for us, and in loving us He will continue to work in, on, and through us until we are called home in death, and leave this flesh behind. "The day of Jesus Christ" might be for each of us the day of our death, and should we still live at His return as the conquering King, it will be when He sets foot on this earth and the war with the fallen angels is finally over. In all of this our confidence is not in ourselves to stay strong, but in Jesus Christ to keep us in the palm of His hand... He is our guide, our covering, our shield, our defender and the Commander of the Hosts of the Father to protect us from the wiles of the enemy, and to warn us when we choose to listen to the flesh or to exert our own wills. He will perform His good work in us until there is no more time and eternity is our fate.
