Philippians 2:12,13

" . . .continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose."NIV

" . . .work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure."KJV

Why would we have to work out our salvation? And why would we have to do it with fear and trembling? Weren't we saved when Christ gave His life on the cross? Of course Christ's death and resurrection gave us the way to God. And yes, our faith in that assures our salvation. But, are we always aware of the spiritual warfare that exists to steal our soul and how subtle it is? Knowing we are saved does not mean we can become lazy and complacent Christians. There is an enemy roaming around seeking someone to devour.

Heavenly Father, how thankful we are for the salvation Jesus Christ made possible for us at the cross. Give us wisdom and awareness so that we can stand firm to the end so that we are not deceived by the enemy. In Jesus' name, Amen.
