Work In Progress

I’m never done. 

It seems that as soon as I finish one project it leads to another.  Sometimes that’s incredibly frustrating.  Sometimes I just want to look at all of done and say, “It’s finished, it’s complete.” 

That will never happen though.  And I’m ok with that.  I’m ok with it because as a pastor my job is helping people discover, trust and love Jesus.  That’s my work.  All my projects further that goal.  And Jesus finished something.  On the Cross, he said, “It is finished.”  

What does that mean?  Well it means that Jesus’ work on the cross finished the work of atonement, of providing grace for sins.  My work that never get’s finished is to point people to the finished work of Jesus. 

I’m a work in progress, you are a work in progress, and we all need to look to the completed work of Jesus.
