6 And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
As we witness for Jesus Christ sometimes we will hear people respond to the Gospel and say, " I want to get saved right now, but I don't want to be a hypocrite." That's a great sounding argument but it has no firm foundation to stand on. Where there is true conversion there is true consolation and confirmation. God promises us that in the Scripture above.
Once we repent, believe, and receive Christ as Savior --God comes and lives in us. He then begins His work of sanctifying us and conforming us to the image of Christ through His Spirit. The only thing we are responsible for where sanctification is concerned is yielding to God's work in us and for us. Don't let that argument stop you when it comes up as you ask him/her if they would like to make a decision for Jesus, just encourage them and give them the Word. (-:
