Good day to you.

Have you ever felt like giving up on the Christian life? It feels unrewarding. Growth seems slow, the same sins tempt us, our spiritual life feels stale. We feel hopeless and discouraged.

When we feel down like that, it is difficult to keep our focus on Jesus, our chief cornerstone. We need to remind ourselves that our lives are under construction and God is a faithful builder.

God is transforming us, through the work of the Holy Spirit, to conform to the likeness of Christ. We are a work in progress.

When we experience dry spells or setbacks, we’re tempted to think that we haven’t grown at all. We develop tunnel vision, focusing only on the present and forgetting the ways in which God has been faithful to us in the past.

Today, let's lift our heads and together with Paul remind ourselves, "being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." (Philippians 1:6)
