Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Therefore – Philippians 2:12-13 – Continue To Work Out Your Salvation – Growing As Disciples

Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed–not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence–continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. Philippians 2:12-13 (NIV)

I’m Working

How have I worked for you? That is a question that I am very happy to answer. You came into this world for me. You lived and died for me. You paid for my sins on the cross. You forgave all my sin. You cleansed me of all my unrighteousness. You rescued me from a life without you. You made me able to live in a close and intimate relationship with you. You filled me with your Holy Spirit as both a sign and guarantee of my new life now and forever in you. You have given me a new life to live. You have given me hope and meaning and purpose in life. I have a new direction in life. What is that direction? I will follow you as you lead me through life. I will go where you guide me. I will do all that you ask of me. Yes, you will.

How have I worked in you? That is another question that I am excited to answer. You have changed my heart and transformed my mind. How have I done that? Am I done changing your heart and transforming your mind? No, you are not finished with me yet, not by a long shot. You will continue to change my heart and transform my mind until the day that I come to live forever in heaven with you. Yes, I will. Tell me more about how I have been changing your heart and transforming your mind. You have used your word to change my heart and transform my mind. Your word has given me your thoughts to think and feelings to feel. Your word has helped me to both know and do your will. How so? As I have let your word dwell in me richly my old thoughts and ways have been replaced with your thoughts and ways. Now, it is my delight to know and do your will because I love you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. Yes, you do.

How have I worked through you? This question also gives me great joy to be able to answer. Why is that? It is astounding to know, that you, the God of the universe, want to work through me. I am humbled. I am in awe. I am at your service. Use me whenever, wherever and however you desire. Nothing would please me more than to be used by you. Use me in small ways. Use me in large ways. Use me in any way. It will be enough for me to know that I have been used by you. I want to bear fruit for your kingdom. I want to bring glory to your name. Yes, you will.

Lord, thank you for rescuing me from a life without you. You are my Savior and Lord. I love you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. I will follow you where you lead me. I will do all that you ask of me. Help me to live out my life of salvation in you. Amen

Calling

I have called you to come to me. I have called you to be taught by me. I have called you to learn from me. There is a time to rest in my presence. There is a time to grow up in me. There is a time to be trained by me. I will mold and shape your life. I will make you into the person I want you to be. My work in your life will never cease. Day by day you will learn from me. Day by day you will be trained by me. Day by day you will become more and more like me. You will want to know me. You will love me with all your heart and mind and soul and strength. There will be no place you won’t go for me. There will be nothing you won’t do for me. You will want to go and do my will. What you have said is the desire of my heart. I do love you. I do want to go and do your will. I do want to become like you in every way on every day as I follow and serve you. Let’s talk more about your serving me.

You will wholeheartedly serve me. I have called you to go out for me. You will leave your comfort. You will let go of your pleasure. You will go and do all that I ask of you. You will be my witness. You will shine brightly for me in the world. I will use you. My hand will be on you. I will go with you. You will bear fruit for my kingdom. You will bring glory to my name. I will give you my power. You will have my authority. I will work in and through your life. You will go out to pray for the bruised and battered and broken. You will have my heart of compassion. You will pray for healing for those who are sick. You will pray for deliverance for all those who are held captive. You will see me at work. Others will be drawn to me through the work I will accomplish in and through your life. Send me Lord. Use me Lord. I am ready, willing and able to go and serve you. Yes, I will send you. Yes, I will use you. Yes, I will make you able to go and serve me.

Lord, I hear your call. I will take on your assignment. I know you are asking me to go and pray for the needs of others. I will allow you to use me. Give me your power and authority to pray for healing and deliverance of all those who are in need. Amen
