No Work Left Undone

Often, we question whether or not we are worthy of God’s grace, care and time. But the question we should be asking is “why wouldn’t we be worthy?” When God sent His Son Jesus to die for us, our worth was sought out even more since the blood of Jesus covered all of our wrongdoings. Every last one of them. Not only did Jesus highlight Himself as our Savior in that moment, but He had the right to become our LORD. “LORD” is not just a title we give Jesus, but a position we allow Him to have over our lives. As we surrender our own will in exchange for His, we operate as His disciples (Matthew 16:24).

After Jesus resurrected from death, He appeared to many of His followers and encouraged them. Along with this, He told them to wait to gain essentially, well, more of Him, because He was going to go back to heaven. He told them to wait for the Holy Spirit, who is a gift that was promised by God, to be given to His people (Joel 2:28, Acts 2:1-4). Jesus told His disciples to wait for the Holy Spirit to come on them so that they would have power to be great witnesses of Him (Acts 1:8). After repenting of our sin, inviting Jesus into our life, and deciding to make Him our LORD and Savior, we can then receive the Holy Spirit (John 3:5).The Holy Spirit is not only God’s Spirit, but also God’s power. The Holy Spirit is called “the Helper,” because He is sent to help us do God’s will and live a godly lifestyle (2 Peter 1:3).

  • We have direct access to God everyday because God dwells within us. This is through the presence of the Holy Spirit. Without the Holy Spirit, we would constantly fail and would not have the power to do a lot of things God has called us to do.

Philippians 1:6 says “I am sure that the good work God began in you will continue until He completes it on the day when Jesus Christ comes again.”

The Holy Spirit is an inner work of Jesus, and will continue to be that way until He returns (Ephesians 1:13-14).

 

Along with the work of the Holy Spirit, we should know that God will also complete these things in us:


The Gospel [the Good News of Jesus; the invitation to be God’s people]

  • Matthew 28:19-20- “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

  • Romans 8:28- “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose.”

Our blamelessness (perfection)

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:23- Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again.”

Our holiness

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:23-Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again.”

Our righteousness

  • 1 John 1:9 NIV- “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

God will forgive our sins as we continuously repent and acknowledge our faults. Through this, He continually guides us to do what is right; to do what pleases Him.


Our faith

  • Hebrews 12:2 AMP- [looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity]”

→ Christ will continue to give us faith and see us through our journey with Him.


Our knowledge of God

  • 1 Corinthians 13:12- “Now we see a blurred image in a mirror. Then we will see very clearly. Now my knowledge is incomplete. Then I will have complete knowledge as God has complete knowledge of me.”

No work will go left undone, because God is faithful to do what He said He would do!
