Philippians 2:12 “Wherefore, my beloved, as ye 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.”
Many times we approach God with a very…well…”whatever” type mentality. The attitude that we are deserving of God’s presence must be removed immediately. So much of our ideas, beliefs, and decisions are made without God’s view or heart. Fear and trembling should be the way we approach God.
- We Must Make Our Decisions With Fear And Trembling – We would be way better off approaching God with reverence and respect. Each decision must be made with the judgment of God in the backdrop.
- We Must Establish Our Beliefs With Fear and Trembling – We should be willing to overlook what everyone else believes in order to establish a Bible based faith. Just because our Grandparents and Parents believed it, does not make it the right belief
- We Must Create Our Ideas With Fear and Trembling – If not careful our sinful imaginations will create ideas that our false.
Today’s Challenge: Keep God’s Judgment in the backdrop of every belief, decision and idea. It will help keep us all in check!
