“Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.”
Philippians 2:12-13 (ESV)

It is easy to “miss” the faith walk that requires sacrifice.
Our minds and emotions want to cling to the GOD who does everything for us – the ONE who is 100 percent love, which HE is, without the justice, mercy, righteousness, judgment and most importantly, HOLINESS. GOD is HOLY. When the angels speak to each other about GOD in Isaiah 6 and in the book of Revelation, they describe HIM as HOLY.
“Holy” means set apart, consecrated, completely other. Completely perfect, beautiful. Completely unexplainable in human terms. Even angels cover their faces and cannot look directly at our Holy GOD.
Out of HIS Holiness come all HIS attributes, which are much more than love.
As a HOLY and loving FATHER, HE requires HIS children to be responsible. There are responsibilities associated with our love-walk, also known as faith-walk, with GOD.
So, what does HE require of me? What is my right response to HIS sacrifice that fixed and fixes me everyday?
“He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?”
Micah 6:8 ESV
“Do justice”…that is an action. “Love kindness”…that is a heart condition.
So when Philippians 2:12-13 says “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling,” it is so true. In a world where vengeance has overtaken justice, we need everyone to put on the heart condition of kindness and humility, remembering that we will all give account for both our heart’s condition and our actions. Nothing escapes the eyes of a Holy GOD.
When you and I share our food with the hungry, come to the aid of the oppressed, and deliberately pray for those who persecute us, we are working out our salvation with fear and trembling.
But the good news is, we are not walking it out alone. It is GOD HIMSELF, that Holy GOD living within us who is wooing us, working in us, to will and to do HIS good pleasure.
On behalf of those whom you feed, educate, clothe, pay for their prescription medications, both in the USA and in all nine countries where WeRemnant has projects, thank you for doing GOD’s good pleasure.
On behalf of the persecuted lovers of JESUS who are walking out their faith under fear of discovery, living and worshiping in caves and other hiding places within mountains, we thank you for walking out your salvation by showing them kindness through the supplies you send monthly.
