Fear and Trembling – Philippians 2:12

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Philippians 2:12
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed – not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence – continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling,

We are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. With fear and trembling. This means we are to examine our lives in view of YHWH’s holiness. Knowing He is calling us to walk in His ways. We shouldn’t take his commands lightly or look at our sin as something of little consequence.

Most all of us have said “Oh, I would never do that.” and I hope that’s indeed the case. However, what we say to others and what we actually do may not always match up. Many have used the phrase “Well, He’s still working on me.” almost as a crutch and excuse for not overcoming their sin. When we say that phrase, or those like it, we have to ask ourselves if we are really acting in fear and trembling of His word.

Are you working out your salvation in fear and trembling?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
