What? "Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling?" (2:12) What is Paul saying?! It would be impossible to follow the example of Christ, especially if we have to "work it out" on our own! Thankfully, Paul continues: "For it is God who works in you, enabling you to both to will and to work for his good pleasure." (2:13) Today we investigate both the "ins" and the "outs" that are part of Christian living as we continue our journey through Paul's letter to the Philippians.
