Philippians 2:12-13 ” Continue to work out your Salvation…for it’s God Who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose.”

Bottom line is, you’ve done nothing to achieve your Salvation, but you must do something in order to exhibit it. It says we must “work out” our own Salvation in which God has already “worked in” us…but what does that really mean? The gracious gift of Salvation was accomplished ( worked in) us by way of the blood of Jesus & His sacrifice on the Cross in our place. But Salvation is just the starting line of our Christian journey and Spiritual growth (working out) is measured by how we speak, think, and react to others. For in the very arenas of our will & actions are where God’s power is working to bring about Christ-likeness. Our job then is bringing about what’s already been accomplished in us.
