BEING AND BECOMING

“Work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure” (Philippians 2:12b-13).

When writing of salvation, the very verb tense utilized by the Apostle Paul, indicates that the true nature of the Christian faith isn’t what we have become but what we are becoming. While the work of God in Christ Jesus is a matter of the heart—an inward transformation—it is played out in our daily lives. Working out your salvation is the practical and visible side of a greater inward reality.
