Philippians One: Take it to the Bank

Posted: January 31, 2012 in Philippians

Paul opens up this letter to the Christians in Philippi with one of the most awesome promises in all of Scripture, found in verse six: ” I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”

There are schools of theology out there that will tell you that salvation is ours as long as we hold fast to it. There are some who would tell you that we’ll be saved if we fulfill our end of the bargain, or if our goods outweigh our bads, or this, or that.

No sir! The same one who initiated our salvation will complete it. Nothing is going to break the Golden Chain of Redemption.
