Construction in Progress

Philippians 1:6
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.
I want to thank Hazel King for writing the devotions for me last week while I was speaking at a Youth camp in Panama City Fl. I have spoken at this camp for the last 11 years. The Church is out of Knoxville TN. and is Central Baptist of Bearden.
Each year at this camp different things happen in the lives of the Young people and the leaders. In a way it is similar to the cars on this assembly line. Different people add to the car as it moves down the line with the goal of making a completed product that will fulfill it's purpose. As people we are different. It is not a cookie cutter production we are involved in, but each day changes are made in our lives helping us develop into the person God wants us to be. At this camp some young people accepted Christ and this was a MAJOR step in their development. Others decided to end some bad habits or begin new ones. Some decided to end relationships or met someone at camp and a new relationship started. Each day God is trying to add things to our lives and sometimes take things away. It is all part of a process with a specific goal of making us more like Christ. What is God trying to do in your life today? Will you allow Him to make the necessary changes needed for you to become more like Christ?
