Your Daily Dose of Boldness – A Work in Progress

A Work in Progress

I love Paul’s quote in Philippians 3:12. If Paul, a chosen disciple of Jesus, felt like this, you can feel assured that you’re in very good company with your imperfections and faults. Like Paul, you’re a glorious work in progress. God is giving you trials and challenges to hone you into a more perfected version of yourself. And although you may fall off the wagon, you can easily and ALWAYS climb back on with God’s help.

So, ask yourself, “Has God honed me to perfection yet?”

Although I would answer this question with a resounding “YES” in front of my wife, Jaclyn (to which she would just roll her eyes), I’ll let you in on a (well-known) secret… I’m far from it. I haven’t arrived, I haven’t accomplished all that God has planned for me, and I struggle every day to be a better version of myself.

Thankfully, it’s not the performance that matters to God, but the will behind the performance. We’re not going to be perfect and we’re not always going to have goodwill or compassion toward our family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues at work.

Sometimes we’re going to feel the pin-pricks of wrath, jealousy, greed, lust, and pride and sometimes we’re going to act on these powerful, but harmful emotions. But know that if this is the case, it isn’t the end-game. You can still move forward and “take hold” of what Jesus has already secured for you.

Don’t let your past failures discourage you or your past successes lull you into a sense of complacency. You will ALWAYS have to make a concerted effort to focus on what you’re doing in the present and decide how you’re going to act in the future.

You do this by:

  • Following his teachings
  • Being faithful in your devotions,
  • Becoming familiar with his word through the Bible and with Him through prayer, and
  • Fighting for your Christian beliefs.

If you do these things, you won’t necessarily become “perfect” in this life, but you’ll be well on your way!

NOT THAT I HAVE ALREADY OBTAINED ALL THIS, OR HAVE ALREADY ARRIVED AT MY GOAL,

BUT I PRESS ON TO TAKE HOLD OF THAT FOR WHICH CHRIST JESUS TOOK HOLD OF ME.

PHILIPPIANS 3:12
