Phillipians 2:12 “Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.”
I don’t want you to work ‘at’ your salvation I want you to ‘work it out.’ What do I mean? When you are working ‘at’ you are trying to change yourself like a sculptor looking on at his art work.
That is not what I mean; that’s my job; you are MY work of art! I AM the potter you are the clay. No, what I mean is that I want you to exercise and exhale what is is in you; what I have placed inside of you.
A woman works out her baby so that’s why it’s with fear and trembling, its not easy so even though the christian life is produced without effort (just like a baby is produced by pleasure), the working out through childbirth can be very painful! Having a free gym membership pass isn’t going to benefit you at all unless you get with the program and start working out in the gym!
