Continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in
you …Philippians 2:12-13 King James Bible
Once we have accepted Jesus that isn’t the end of it. Going to church once a week isn’t the end of it.
No, brothers and sisters salvation is not a one off encounter.
It is a weekly, a daily, an hourly and indeed a moment by moment event.
We must surrender all aspects of our lives to Christ in order to maintain our salvation. If we do not it may happen as slow as molasses or it may be as fast and powerful as an avalanche. One thing is certain though, we WILL, lose our salvation when it is not directed and controlled by Christ.
Fear and trembling is referring to awe and respect. We should be in awe of Gods love for us and respect His decisions on what is right for us. Let His thoughts direct every aspect of our lives.
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Psalm 139:17, New International Version
They are not only jewels of wisdom, but daily guidance references as well.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
— Ephesians 3:20-21 the new international version
Prayer: Jehovah Yahew (God of His people) thank you for your gracious gift of salvation. Please help me to surrender every aspect to your intelligent guidance in my life. In the name of the consummate councilor Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ love bless you today and every day
