II Pet 1:3,4 – ‘as His divine power has given to us all things that [pertain] to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, Epistle to the Philippians Phil 2:12-13, Work Out Your Own Salvation 2 April 29, 2012 Bob Eckel

  4. And He has positioned us with everything we need. Rom 6:3,4 – ‘Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.’ Eph 2:4,5 – ‘But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),’ II Thess 2:13,14 – ‘But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.’ I Pet 1:3 – ‘Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,’ for [His] good pleasure Epistle to the Philippians Phil 2:12-13, Work Out Your Own Salvation 4 April 29, 2012 Bob Eckel

In Phil 2:12 we have human responsibility Are we living by faith? In Phil 2:13 we have divine enablement Do we fully believe this? ‘The Lord Jesus carried out the work of the Cross as to our eternal position. The Holy Spirit carries out the work of the Cross as to our present position. ‘He will take the things that are Mine and will transmit them to you (John16:15 Amp)’ Miles Sanford, NBHH 4-27 Epistle to the Philippians Phil 2:12-13, Work Out Your Own Salvation 5 April 29, 2012 Bob Eckel
