WORK IT OUT // FEBRUARY 23, 2021
Continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling...
Paul was writing to people who were already saved. The issue was not their salvation. The issue was bringing the work Christ was doing in their lives to completion, and doing so with an attitude of awe and reverence for God.
We do not work for our salvation. Good works can't save us. However, we are called to work out our salvation. Our goal as Christians is to become all God has called us to be, and that is a process. Like a math equation, we need to continue working it out to the end.
Your life might look messy right now, but God is not finished with you. You are growing! You are developing! There is still more for your marriage! More for your career! God has deposited so much in you but you must work it out. Is there an area of your life where you are settling (or being tempted to settle)? What would it look like to move forward once again? Journal about this today, asking God for his help as you step back in to work it out.
