“…But much more now in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, enabling you both to will and to work for his good pleasure.” Philippians 2: 12b-13
What a joy the day you received Jesus Christ into your life! Yes, the heavens rejoice that day because you are no longer the old you and now, you are a new person.
That is salvation! And the question is; does salvation just ended there? The answer is simple and that is; Salvation is a process steps. When you are saved. You don’t sit there and that’s it. To keep standing with the Lord, you need to work out your salvation.
The ways to do it are;
— Reading your Bible and DAILY!
— Pray at all times and EVERYDAY!
— Living in the presence of the HOLY SPIRIT every second of your LIFE!
— Preaching the Gospel every day and THROUGH ALL MEANS!
— Keep constant relationship with God and WITHOUT ANY RELENT
— Being conscious of who you are, the way you talk, think, look, react and of course your attitude towards life.
— And many more.
When you are able to do these without any problems then you are working out your salvation. And lastly, never you think that you are above temptation. In fact, you are prone to temptations now than ever because the devil will not relax and see you serving God. He will do all he can to tempt you and this is why with all fear and trembling, which means with extreme consciousness and dedication to God, you are and will be able to overcome any temptation.
Believe me, being a believer is great and I love being one BUT you need to work it out!
