This week, Alix and I completed a project in our garden at home. We started to work on the project over eight months ago but became busy or distracted with other things and then winter came. Then, there was the motivational factor: completing the project entailed wheelbarrowing many loads of heavy gravel into our back garden. Once we started again, we found that completing the job was easier than it had become in my mind.
Most of us have those unfinished projects in our world, and even though we understand the satisfaction we receive through their completion, many projects will never be completed.
Unlike us, Jesus is not limited by time, distraction or motivation.
‘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)
He never stops working on us and He always completes what He starts.
It’s easy to feel like the work in us has stopped or that’s as far as we can go. You can push through whatever is happening because if Jesus has started it, He will keep working until it’s complete.
