The most important thing is to have faith, love, for others and teach our society about the goodness of our lord Jesus Christ


MockingBird's comment on 2014-02-28 10:09:57:

Being confident assured of persuaded of God didn t call me into this Grace to go through things in this life good or bad by myself he sent holy Spirit within to teach guide instruct discipline chastise and love As long as I listen and do what He says he Jesus will finish His good work Sometimes it is hard to put to death my flesh but I found the Blessings of The Lord abound when I Trust and Obey and Submit that is to enjoy to do what my Lord says Praise God


Michele's comment on 2014-01-27 19:17:46:

I believe God is saying, we are not perfect, we He started a good work in us, and he is faithful to complete it!! We live in the flesh, only our Lord is perfect and just!!!


Elisha Kelleh Kabbah's comment on 2014-01-15 09:50:06:

God want us to believe and trust in his word and be fruitful
But shear the good news by talking to those that have not receive him and in doiing so we truely love him and will
Receive our reward.

our confidence is in jesus christ, not ourselves


Oluwole Gabriel's comment on 2014-01-10 12:17:02:

god finishes whatever he starts inspite of prevailing circumstances favourable or not he is the author and finisher of his plans and purposes


Joseph Gakura's comment on 2013-11-30 18:46:08:

Paul says , *preach the gospel without fearing.* Elohim is the boss in Jesus' work, as his followers we ought to follow his steps in anyways, and I like that.

Can God? God can.


Isaac's comment on 2013-11-08 10:16:09:

The 'he'here is not God but 'anybody' from among the believers;otherwise God would not judge anyone for failing to accomplish what he started and the "if we don't give ups" in the bible,have no meanings since it's God who started it and must compplete it until jesus comes as some think.


Udeme Nta's comment on 2013-10-05 06:24:15:

It prepares us for the second coming of Christ. Jesus is the whole point of discussion in the book of philipians


Ntando Ncube's comment on 2013-10-05 05:43:40:

God is faithful and does not do half jobs, all his work is absolutely perfect just like in the time of creation, at the end of it all-all was very good. Its really none of our business how He does it but we have to trust Him with all our heart


Lizzy's comment on 2013-09-16 03:23:52:

to me am saying that the book of philippians is encouraging us to trust God who can do everything


Nancy's comment on 2013-09-04 01:11:29:

I think that Philippians 1:6 is majorly focusing on our faith as Christians. We need to focus solely on God,because He's the All Knowing God and He surely shall make everything that He promised to come to pass to them who believe in Him.


DPMills's comment on 2013-09-04 00:27:44:

God is the true ruler of all that we see- he created this as well as all of us! It is not our place to question his devine wisdom?


Bart Owsley's comment on 2013-08-16 18:02:57:

In 1999, I was diagnosed with cancer. During this first few months, the Lord revealed to me this scripture. That He would finish what He had started!! Five months later the cancer was gone, and He had surely finished what He had started. Doing well today!!


Chuks Cyrus's comment on 2013-03-24 01:06:55:

Just as Christ came and fulfilled his purpose on earth. So is God giving us the assurance that whatever purpose he God has commissioned us to do, that He will help us to finish and fulfil it just as Christ did.


Ron's comment on 2013-03-23 09:25:19:

It would seem, according to the Word to God, that although life can become challenging in part having difficulties to face; because God Himself has begun a work in us, it will be performed to the fullest, despite any challenge or difficulty! What shall separate us from the Love of God?


Timothy Wayne George's comment on 2013-01-19 16:09:27:

Just went from home going to a service for one of the Church members of my father's Church Mt. Zion Baptist, and this is the completion of this verse, when Jesus calls us home to glory. Jesus prayed that we would be with him in heaven, and at salvation, He justifies us, separates us for His service, then He calls us home to glory. Thank God death is not the end, but a transformation to glory. Praise God when we all get to heaven, what a glorious day that will be.


Rionel's comment on 2012-11-13 13:31:13:

God is the beginner and He ends whatever He started.


Olaniyan Akinyemi's comment on 2012-09-30 12:48:01:

Let your salvation and faith in Christ be intact, then your trust in the Lord will now abound.


T C NDLELA's comment on 2011-03-14 18:14:27:

What ever that has been started by God ,shall be guided by God and Shall be finished by God . So lets aloow Him to start new things to us and have faith to him
