    Hi Gail is NOT confusing! Once we are save Romans 6:23. We have confident from flesh to eternal glory incorruptible body John 3:6. We have assurance since life on earth is very cunning but we have hope of eternal life.

  • Lateisha for verse 6
    I truly believe there is something in all of us but we must stir it up. If we get pass what people think of us and take root what God says we are, then and only then, we can set the course for greatest.
  • I think it means that if you have salvation and then walk away from God, that he will bring you back to him at some time, because he did start a good work in you and he will complete what he started in you, I find this scripture a bit confusing though.
  • If God has called you to be His then no matter how far away you try to run He will, in the end, bring his plan for your salvation to fruition. My son believed when he was young then got mixed up with ratbags and wrong crowd.We just kept praying for him and visit him in jail and when he got out he still prefer drugs etc. Then one day he was so close to death and says that story is between him and God we 'll never know full story but now he 's living for God, telling everyone about the power of God for salvation...He GOD who began a good work in our son 10 years ago will complete what He began.Praise the Lord!
