The Great Finisher

23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass (1 Thessalonians 5).

Here is yet one other biblical text concerning the security of the believer. God is “faithful,” and He will indeed “bring … to pass” what He has begun in our lives. He who “calls” is He who will also “sanctify” so that every part of us will be “preserved complete” on that great day when Jesus comes back for His own.

Here’s the bottom line: God always finishes what He starts; He just doesn’t ever go halfway. You can take that to the bank. He placed His Spirit within us in order to work His Son out of us, and nothing will deter Him until that is accomplished. In fact, even while He is making it happen, He already sees it as if it already has.

Lord, thank You for Your faithfulness! Help us This Day to be faithful to You. Amen.
