Finishing the Work

“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. And here is my judgment about what is best for you in this matter. Last year you were the first not only to give but also to have the desire to do so. Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means” (2 Corinthians 8:9-11).

Do you have a vision from God that you believe with all your heart? Is it something into which you have poured your heart and soul? Have you not seen the work of your hands bring you closer to that vision? Perhaps you have become weary because of constant struggle to attain that vision. You were the one to whom God imparted the vision. You were the first to get it started. “Now finish the work” Paul writes, “according to your means.” You can only finish to the best of your ability according to what you have been given. God's perfect will is for the vision to be completed, but you can't make a vision happen.... even from all you have done to inspire others to catch your vision. If you have given the work your very best, God will do one of two things. He will bring it to completion with the support you have around you, or he will give you another means to achieve it. It is His promise for the work to be completed.

The sacrifice of Jesus Christ has made you rich in purpose. He is your reason, and He is your life. You will see the vision completed.
