Working Out Your Salvation

 

Many times as believer we settle into maintenance mode.  God has not called us to maintain, he has called us to be like Christ.  

Philippians 2:12-13 New International Version (NIV)

Do Everything Without Grumbling

12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

Three things God uses to bring about spiritual growth:

  1. The Word of God
  2. The Holy Spirit
  3. Situations, circumstances, and the people around us.

Three things I have to do to work out my salvation

  1. Allow God's Word to renew my mind
  2. Be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit
  3. Choose how I am going to respond to the things that happen in my life
