I Corinthians 1:8 ” He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

We can’t save ourselves.  Nor can we lead a totally blameless and holy life without the help of the Holy Spirit.  For it reminds us in Philippians 1:6, “That He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Jesus Christ.”  The Holy Spirit is ever at work,  confirming in you the goals and objectives set before you…until that day the ultimate plan and purpose of your life is fulfilled in you through Christ Jesus.  We can’t do this without the help of the Holy Spirit.  Jesus spoke of this as He called the first disciples in Matthew 4:19,  when He said to them, “Come, follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”   The Greek word for “make” here means that Jesus would actually be doing the work…causing and enabling those fishermen to seek and draw out the lost around them.  And we now have the Holy Spirit to do that work in us…inspiring, strengthening, and giving us confidence.
