Many churches throughout the world use a Bible reading schedule called a "lectionary." It's just a fancy word meaning "selected readings." Posts like this reflect on the readings for an upcoming Sunday or other Church holiday, as found in the historic one-year lectionary.
In Philippians chapter one the apostle gives thanks for the church in Philippi. He is sure, according to verse six, that "he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ" (Philippians 1:6, ESV). The work of God in Christ, redeeming us and keeping us safe in His hands to eternal life, is a certain thing. God promises that he is able to take care of his people, even until the last day. No matter what may interrup them, they can be secure in Christ.
Where are we tempted to find our security? In money? In family? In shows of respect? In a fulfilling career? All these, though they are good things, will fall short of eternal fulfillment.
Our security is found in Christ. He is the one who began the work of the Spirit in us. He is the one who can bring it to completion. He is the one who guards us every step of the way in between.
