1 And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them,

2 Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead.

3 And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide.

4 Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.

5 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes,

6 And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem.

7 And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name, have ye done this?

8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,

9 If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;

10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.

11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.
- Philippians 2:12-13

On the one hand, there is our responsibility to do what we believe God wants us to do. On the other hand, there is God’s providential work in our lives to accomplish His Will through us. How shall we reconcile the two? For the logician, it is an either/or situation, because the two sides seem to logically cancel one another out. But for the Apostle Paul in our verses for today, in contrast, it is a both/and situation. We work out our own salvation, and God also works through us to accomplish His good pleasure.

“Work out your own salvation” does not mean that the members of the Philippian church must figure out a way to save themselves. It means that in Paul’s absence they are responsible on their own apart from him to work out the implications of the salvation they have received from God through faith in Jesus Christ. In other words, they should produce works befitting those who have been saved by God without Paul telling them what to do.

“With fear and trembling” does not imply that if the people do not work out their salvation just right they can lose their salvation. It means that they should work out their salvation with reverential humility and respect for the God whom they serve. Since they are now responsible on their own, they should be careful not to offend God through disobedience. The truly reverent and humble person cares greatly what God thinks of them.

Although the Philippian church must now work apart from Paul, they do not work apart from God. This is because God is working through them to accomplish His Will. The church can be confident that He “who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6).

The mind of the logician boggles before our verses for today, but the person of faith accepts and rejoices in the mystery that includes both our responsible, reverential work and God’s providential work through us.

1 What, then, shall we say? Shall we continue in sin, to let favour increase?

2 Let it not be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it?

3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were immersed into Messiah יהושע were immersed into His death?

4 We were therefore buried with Him through immersion into death, that as Messiah was raised from the dead by the esteem of the Father, so also we should walk in newness of life.

5 For if we have come to be grown together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also of the resurrection,

6 knowing this, that our old man was impaled with Him, so that the body of sin might be rendered powerless, to serve sin no longer.

7 For he who has died has been made right from sin.

8 And if we died with Messiah, we believe that we shall also live with Him,

9 knowing that Messiah, having been raised from the dead, dies no more – death no longer rules over Him.

10 For in that He died, He died to sin once for all; but in that He lives, He lives to Elohim.

11 So you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to Elohim in Messiah יהושע our Master.

12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, to obey it in its desires,

13 neither present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to Elohim as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to Elohim.

14 For sin shall not rule over you, for you are not under the law but under favour.
