Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
The word workout in you Bible comes from the Greek word katergozomai. It is a picture word that gives the illustration of a man who has a treasure in the field, a goldmine if you will, and must dig it up in order to display its worth. For all of us who are born again, we have been given the Gift (John 3:16). For we have this treasure in our earthen vessels which is the power of God (2 Cor 4:7). Thanks be unto God who is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above what we can even ask or think, according to the power that works in us.. We have received the gift (John 1:11), but we must stir it.(2 Tim 1:6) We have salvation, but we must work it out!
The greatest tragedy in the church today is the grieving of the Holy Spirit! We somehow have been deceived to believe we will be transformed just by having a gym membership and stepping into the gym twice a week. No man has ever been transformed without working out! Oh dear believer, May God stir up in you the fear and faith to workout what He has already put in you. For it is God that WORKETH IN you both to do His will and His good pleasure, but it is you who must WORK IT OUT. The world does not need more of us, it needs more of Him!!! The treasure of all treasures is in you- WORK OUT! How sad it is for a man to be sitting on a goldmine and never work it out. You must present yourself a living sacrifice (Rom 12:1), pick up your shovel of faith, and dig with fear and trembling for the glory of God. A true workout will always bring transformation.(Rom 12:2) Does the world see you or do they see the treasure that is in you? Submit, sacrifice, and sweat today so that the old man can be put away and the new man can come forth. Don’t get Man-fit, Baptist-fit, catholic-fit, religious-fit or Cross-fit ; workout your salvation and get CHRIST-FIT!!! 💪💯
