“God’s Purpose Will Not Fail” ( John 1: 1 – 3, NEB ) by Carley Evans

John tells us: “When all things began, the Word already was. The Word dwelt with God, and what God was, the Word was. The Word, then, was with God at the beginning, and through Him all things came to be; no single thing was created without Him.”

 

Paul reiterates that “it is in Christ that the complete being of the Godhead dwells embodied.” (Colossians 2:9)

Therefore, since Christ is God, “our release is secured and our sins are forgiven through the shedding of His blood.” (Ephesians 1:7) “In Christ indeed we have been given our share in the heritage, as was decreed in His design whose purpose is everywhere at work.” (Ephesians 1:11)

 

We need not worry. “We are citizens of heaven, and from heaven we expect our deliverer to come, the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 3:20) “The Lord is near; have no anxiety.” (Philippians 4:6)

 

“Of one thing I am certain,” writes Paul, “the One who started the good work in you will bring it to completion by the Day of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:6)
