He Who Began a Good Work


God is good. 
For He is good, what He does is good(Ps 119:68) and 
In all things He works for the good of those love Him(Ge 50:20; Rm 8:28). 

Good things come out of the good stored up in the good man, while 
Evil things come out of the evil stored up in the evil man(Mt 12:35). 
All things that come out of God is good. 

Faith is receiving Him and 
The life of this faith is waiting and overcoming until He who began a good work in you carries it to completion. 

After God made all things, He said, “It was good”(Ge 1:31) for 
He began His good work. 

Though Adam ate the forbidden fruit and sinned, 
God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil”(Ge 3:22), 
As Adam would now participate in the work of the death and the resurrection of the Son, and 
God changed evil to good. 

The Law is good(Rm 7:12-13). 
Though sin was in the world, it was not taken into account before the Law came(Rm 5:12). 
Hence, after the Law came, sin sprang up and 
Led sinners like a tutor to the Savior(Gal 3:24). 

While the tablets inside the ark of the sanctuary 
Reminded Israel about sin, 
The teachers of the Law, the Pharisees, 
Misunderstood it and misled Israel(Lk 6:39-40). 

Jesus said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days”(Jn 2:19-21), 
Because through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body, 
He would reveal that He alone is good(Lk 18:18-23) for 
He is the Word that became flesh, in which was life(Jn 1:1, 14, 14), and 
The good shepherd who came to do good, i.e., giving life(Jn 10:11, Mk 3:1-4). 

As He died, Jesus said, “It is finished”(Jn 19:30), declaring that He: 
1. Laid down His life for He knew that He would gain it again(Jn 5:29, Jn 10:17-18); 
2. Condemned the evil one(Jn 10:10; 1Jn 3:8); and 
3. Shed His blood and sowed the seed of life in souls(Jn 1:1-4, 14; 1Pe 1:23). 
The Father raise Him up and 
Jesus ascended to the heavenly throne. 

The Holy Spirit comes to those who received 
The blood of Jesus, the seed of life, and 
He lets them finish the good of Jesus Christ(Php 1:6). 

The men of the Spirit know that, 
When they go through 
Trouble, hardship, persecution, famine, nakedness, danger or sword(Rm 8:35-37), 
God’s good work has begun in them 
So they do not despair. 
Therefore, they pray until answer comes(1Ki 28:41-44), 
Wait patiently until healing comes(Mk 8:22-25), and 
Do good by giving life to souls(Mk 3:4) for 
They long to rise to live and enter eternal life(Jn 5:29; Rm 2:7). 

O Lord, 
Open our eyes and 
Let us see beyond these obstacles! 
Let us wait patiently and overcome to see something good taking place! 
Amen.
