“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” (Philippians 1:6).Text — Philippians 1:6-10
God has good plans for His children. He wants us to have the fullness of all blessings – spiritual, physical, financial and academic. Spiritually God wants His children to grow from grace to grace. Kent R. Hunter wrote, “Churches do not grow unless Christian people grow; Christian people grow when they are in the Word of God.” The Philippians in our text were born again. But Paul would not only want them to endure in the faith but to have other Christian experiences. Moreover, he prayed that their love would abound in knowledge and judgment. His desire for them was pure love controlled by God’s Word among them and not by carnal or satanic ideas. They were to walk by things excellent, sincere, and without offence as fruits of their being filled with righteousness.
Dear friend, don’t be satisfied with your present spiritual state but grow in Christian conduct and character. This will help you to prepare for heaven. So, strive to possess all that God has for you by attending Christian fellowships, praying, reading the Bible daily and meditating on it.
Have the fullness of blessings
Be a combination of spiritual and academic excellence.
