As a young preacher's kid, we had the privilege of going out to eat with our apostle on occasion. When we did, he would always tell me George CPL. Of course, I asked him the first time what he meant, and then every time after, I knew exactly what he was telling me. CPL meant clean plate leave. We always eat at the cafeteria, and you could take as much as you wanted to. My apostle said, George if you're going to take it easy, all of it, don't leave it on your plate.
That's a strange story to tell you when we're talking about God's nature and his faithfulness. God has that same attitude when he deals with us that everything he starts, he always finishes. His promises are true; his covenants are unbroken; you can depend on him to fulfill his desires for you.
So how do we respond? We respond by faith and obedience. When we do, we receive the abundance of grace and the gift of salvation.
I love the declaration Jesus made on the cross that sums it all up when he said it is finished.
