Obedience Required by God

Text: Philippians 2:12-13

“So then” – imitate Christ’s example

“As you have always obeyed” – persistent, continuous

“Not as in my presence only…in my absence” – willing, not forced

“Work out your own” – individual responsibility

“Salvation” – not about life on earth, but eternal life

“With fear and trembling” – knowing there is punishment for not obeying

“Work for His good pleasure” – do the works of God
