    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.

    Nehemiah provides us with another glimpse of Jesus as Healer and Savior.
    Written by Nehemiah, this book records the events surrounding the third and final group of Jews who returned from exile in Babylon.

    Nehemiah traveled back and forth between Babylon and Jerusalem - Nehemiah 2:1; 13:6. He led the Jews in rebuilding the wall surrounding Jerusalem - Nehemiah 2:18. Despite opposition, the wall was repaired in fifty-two days--a testament to God's power. Nehemiah also cleaned up the temple and called the people back to proper worship and living.

    Like Jesus - Luke 2:52 and Ezra, Nehemiah found favor with God and with the Persian ruler, Artaxerxes I - Nehemiah 2:2, as prophesied by Daniel - Daniel 9:25-27. Nehemiah freely left his position as cupbearer and advisor in the Persian king's palace, in line with God's perfect will - Nehemiah 5:14; 8:9; 10:1; 13:6. In cooperation with Ezra, Nehemiah led the people in renewing their covenant with God.

    Throughout this book, Nehemiah modeled steadfastness, courage, and compassion for the Jewish people. As he completed his God-given mission, he was constantly praying and depending upon God for success.

    In Nehemiah we see a type of Christ, who brought healing and restoration to the Jews and all mankind, who was steadfast in prayer, and who focused on His role at His own expense. Essentially Nehemiah gave up the king's cup to take God's "cup"--the job of salvaging the Jews' land and temple and their lives, in preparation for the coming Messiah. Later the Christ to come--Jesus--would bear His Father's cup as well to take the sins of the whole world by going to the Cross.

    God Bless
