CHRIST'S FINISHED WORK
The work on Calvary is finished. No more payment for sin is necessary. He did it all by Himself on the cross. We can't earn it. We can't add to it. It is finished. Yet, sometimes we try to add our good works to His salvation. However, the work He is doing on everyone who has accepted Christ as Savior is not finished. Salvation is finished. Sanctification is not. Completion is not. Philippians 1:6 promises that "He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Yet, we think we need to do more. Give this some consideration: sometimes more effect is required to keep rolling the stone back over the tomb than simply to cooperate with the work He seeks to finish in us. He really does know what He's doing. Let's don't miss out on the great adventure He has planned for us. Let's cooperate!
