God Works in Us and Through Us

By In

For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. (Philippians 2:13 ESV)

As children of God, God is working in us to restore us from our sinful state or nature to makes us more like him and less of ourselves as we desire and enjoy Him day by day. Through this work He is doing in us we develop the desire to do His good will and live according to His purpose for our lives.

This work He is doing in us is the work of transformation to be more like Him as we renew our minds with His word. This work is an ongoing process as we continue to abide in Him until we die.
He also works through us for His good pleasure, which is the outward part of the work done in us which seen. God works through us to lead men unto Him, to affect lives both locally and internationally. Which in all these it is for His Glory or good pleasure.
He first works in us to do His will and in doing His will He works through us for His Glory.
God is at work in you and working through you to affect lives for His Glory. God bless you.
