This week’s prompt: Complete.
Christ’s work on the cross is complete; our salvation is sealed because He did everything necessary to reconcile us to the Father.
Our restoration, however, is not yet complete. We wait for the day when we are resurrected and made sinless. Until then, we undergo the process of sanctification, becoming more like Christ as we study His Word and live in community with His people.
Only in Jesus are we made whole; without Him, we are empty and searching. He has restored us to a right relationship with God the Father and given us eternal life and a spiritual family. When we meet Him face to face, He will make us completely clean, renewed, resurrected, alive.
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6 ESV
