God’s Future Work

Phil 1:6 And I am sure that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on that day when Christ Jesus comes back again.

 I think this relates to what Larry Crabb talks about in Connections. Look for what God is doing and even the good work that God will do in the future in others. Praise that and encourage that and give thanks for that in them. Sometimes, you will have to look for it. That is a good exercise: looking for what God is doing and will continue to do in the people around you. Think of them in terms of what God will do in their lives, not just in terms of the failings and weaknesses that are obvious now.
