TITLE: The Finished Work

The person for a writer to please is ultimately the Editor-in-Chief; the overall supervisor of one’s work. As I pondered this Webster’s definition I was somehow drawn to the Hebrews 12:2 passage that describes Jesus as the “author and finisher” of my faith. In that respect, may I refer to Him as the Editor-in-Chief of my life? He is certainly the One I want to please.

As I continue thinking in this vein I examined the job of a Chief Journalist according to the thesaurus. This editor is responsible for the content in a part of a newspaper or magazine. Again I refer to the work of Jesus Christ in my life. “…He who began a good work in you will complete it…“ (Phil.1:6 NKJ) Jesus will edit His work in my life and will not present it until it is finished. For this task He gave me the Holy Spirit who I will refer to as the “Line Editor” of my life.

The Line Editor works as the corrector, the checker, the proof-reader. There will be no “typos”, no grammatical errors, no misspelling when His work is finished . The Holy Spirit is constantly there adjusting and correcting my life. He is my advocate and my comforter. He is the One given to me for reproof and correction. Someday, He will present me to Jesus and the Father as “holy and blameless and above- reproach in His sight” (Colossians 1:22 NKJ)

Every writer longs to hear words of praise from the lips of their Editor for their completed work.
However brief or long my life may be I will be presented to the Father . I will be a complete and perfected work by the “author and finisher” of my faith. My eternal joy would be to hear the Editor-in-Chief of my life say, “Well Done”.

I didn't know there were different kinds of editors. Thank you for all the information and for tying it altoghter so beautifully with the scriptures.

You did a great job of tying in scripture with each "job description". Educational and inspiring.
