You and I were made to work. We get bored when we don’t have anything constructive to do. Adam and Eve were working before they were sinning. Work is good; laziness is bad. But when it comes to our standing before God, He tells us not to work. He tells us to rest. He tells us to let someone else work for us—Jesus, who finished His work when He humbled Himself to the point of death, even death on a cross. So then why does Paul tell us to “work out your salvation”? What does he mean? The answer is essential to living lives that are worthy of the Gospel.
His and yours,
