    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.

    There is a lot of noise, lots of "religions" and beliefs out there to confuse anyone. But, Jesus is real. He loves you, He's ready to forgive you for all your sins and make your heart His dwelling place. Read about God's characteristics and attributes and get to know the real Jesus today.

    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.

    Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

    --1 John 4:4

    Satan doesn't want you to know this, but as a follower of Christ, you are victorious!

    Yes, you have a very real and very deadly enemy. Yes, you're engaged in a spiritual battle with him every single day. But you are victorious in Jesus Christ! The battle is already won.

    As believers, we fight from a position of strength, not from a position of weakness. We fight from victory---not for victory. When Jesus cried out "it is finished" (John 19:30) on the cross, Satan was finished. And because of the cross, we have victory in Jesus.

    When we came into the Kingdom of God, we were not only transformed, we were translated from the kingdom of darkness into the glorious Kingdom of God. We were born again into the family of God as His children. And because we're children of God, we are joint heirs with the Lord Jesus Christ. That means everything is ours because of Him!

    Since you and I have been born into the family of God, the risen, resurrected Redeemer is living in us. The Holy Spirit has taken up residence in our lives and as a result, "he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world"!

    That's our victory in Jesus and that's why we can say we fight, not for victory, but from victory, from the strongest possible position of strength! According to God's Word, through Jesus Christ we are invincible against the attacks of the enemy---invincible.

    For the Scripture says in 1 John 2:17, "Whoever does the will of God abides forever."

    I want to leave you with one last thought today: Satan may frighten you---but he cannot hurt you. Because as God's child, you are in His omnipotent grip! As it says in 2 Corinthians 4:8-9, "We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed"!!

    It's my prayer that the Lord Jesus would encourage you with these words---no matter what you may be going through today.

    As Believers in the Lord JESUS CHRIST, the battle is already WON!
