‘God is at work in you.’

Philippians 2:12-3:11
God’s command – ‘Work out your own salvation’- must never be separated from His promise – ‘God is at work in you’( 12-13). We do not save ourselves – We ‘put no confidence in the flesh’. We are saved by the Lord – We ‘glory in Christ Jesus’(3). We are to ‘shine as lights in the world’, directing attention away from ourselves to Him who is ‘the Light of the world’- our Lord Jesus Christ (15; John 8:12). We have this testimony: “I have ‘no righteousness of my own’. ‘Through faith in Christ’, I have received ‘this righteousness from God’”(9). We are living in difficult times. This is ‘a crooked and perverse generation’ (15). We are called to ‘hold fast the Word of life’ (16). It will not be easy. We will face many difficulties. We must take encouragement from this: ‘God is at work in you’ (13).
