WORK, FOR IT IS GOD WHO WORKS IN YOU: Philippians 2:12-13


DISCUSSION

I. In light of Christ’s humility by which he saved us, what does Paul command in verse 12? How does Hebrews 5:8-9 help clarify?

II. How do Romans 8:12-13 and 2 Corinthians 5:5 help us understand how we “work out our own salvation with fear and trembling”? 

III. According to verses 13, who is it that is working in us as we “work out [our] own salvation with fear and trembling”? To what end is God working in us according to the last part of verse 13?

IV. What danger do we fall into if we live only according to verse 12? What danger do we fall into if we live only according to verse 13?

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We are a cooperating member of The Southern Baptist Convention. We confess the 1689 second london baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the reformationas well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
