Hello All!

It’s been a long time since I’ve written and honest to goodness post around here and for that I’d like to apologize, it’s just that sometimes life or what goes on in it consumes you. Things suck up all your time and soon you find yourself neglecting the sharing and edifying of others with God’s Word, the Devil likes it that way.

Well it’s time to work out!

That’s right…work out!

Tonight I’ll be breaking down two verses from Philippians 2 and getting down to what is and is not being said through them so let’s check them out!

12 So then, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now even more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God who is working in you, enabling you both to desire and to work out His good purpose.

Philippians 2:12-13 Holman Christian Standard Bible

Breakout the Workout!

Oh…my…those verses look a bit like erm…works right. Coming from a legalistic background whe work out just stands out but before we try to figure it out we need to note something. Verse 12 starts with the words: “So then…” and those words are very much like “Therefore…” “Since…” or “Because of…”. The first question to ask when confronted with a there fore is…what is it there for!

Hello everyone, I’m sorry this took so long to get online but I’ve been putting it off to be honest because I wanted to be sure to get it right. Just today I realized that I should simply get it up, as God has already prepared the hearts of those who are going to read it and find perhaps some more clarity and depth to the Word than they realized. I hope this ongoing study blesses you as much as it does me.

How I’ll Break Up Each Study

A short word is needed to clarify how I’ll arrange each study even though it might in the end seem exceedingly obvious. Basically I’ll take a section of scripture generally no longer than 7 verses and I’ll put the whole scripture at the top of the study. After this I’ll then break it down one verse at a time with the notes following each individual verse. Finally I’ll do a recap of the most important things we’ve learned from the study of this section of scripture.

John 1:1-5

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

(All scripture quotations are from the ESV- English Standard Version of the Bible).

So let’s get to it! Follow me after the break!
