    What does it mean to Work Out Your Salvation?

    I think a lot of believers don't know what it means to work out your own salvation. Many, I've come to realize think this means that salvation comes by works and not of free gift of grace through Jesus Christ. So, let's study this. I found a great little bible study on this passage below.

    Finding God's Will

    When you make a decision, how do you know you are choosing to do the right thing? In this message, Dr. Stanley explains why we have trouble discerning God’s will and how sin affects our ability to walk in the path He has chosen for us. He also encourages us to discover the Lord’s will through reading the Word of God, praying faithfully, trusting our heavenly Father’s sovereignty over our circumstances, and listening to the wise counsel of others.

    A Mind That Loves God

    You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind.
    Luke 10:27

    In his book, Think: The Life of the Mind and the Love of God, John Piper wrote, "The main reason God has given us minds is that we might seek out and find all the reasons that exist for treasuring Him in all things and above all things. He created the world so that through it and above it we might treasure Him. … Thinking is a God-given means to that end." 1

    The Bible constantly refers to keeping our minds sound and sharp for Christ, of having the mind of Christ, of being transformed by the renewing of our minds, and of having our thoughts stayed on God and fixed on Jesus.


    Evil thoughts grow in our minds like weeds, but we can cultivate wholesome thoughts with Bible meditation and judicious reading. Choose a healthy diet for your mind. Replace evil thoughts with memorized Scripture. True Christianity is never anti-intellectual; and growing Christians don't idle their minds in neutral. Love the Lord your God with all your mind.

    Loving God with the mind means that our thinking is wholly engaged to do all it can to awaken and express the heartfelt fullness of treasuring God above all things.
