A work in progress

Philippians 2:12-13 It is God who works in you in order to fulfill his good purpose.

Even after you encounter the love of God and give  your heart to Christ,  excepting the gift of salvation through his death on the cross,  you will continue to discover new dimensions of what it means to be saved.  When you except Jesus into your life,  The holy spirit comes to dwell inside you,  and his presence guides and directs you, comfort and encourage you.

But you still have choices to make and you must learn to let your love for God be at the center of your decision. Your obedience to God is for your own good,  not because  you have to work it out to get to heaven or he’s going to leave you if your work isn’t good enough.  Working out your salvation with fear means that you remain humble, teachable and open to what God is doing in your life.  Salvation is a process,  a work in progress,  as you become transformed into the image of Jesus on purpose.
