“… continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling….” Philippians 12:2.
This, in and of itself, can be a bit intimidating. What often gets lost in the “fear and trembling” part is what follows: “for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.”
God works in me. That is, I am not in this alone – there is help! This reflects the “partnership with God” that my friend Steve Kinney speaks of so often. And that is the good news, really good news, ‘cause I can use that help, particularly when I start to thinking I don’t really need it and I got this covered on my own.
