When the apostle Paul wrote this letter to the Christians in Philippi, probably from Rome C.A.D. 62, he encouraged the Philippians to live as citizens of a heavenly city, growing in their commitment to serve God and one another. Jesus is the supreme example of this way of life.
Paul, Timothy, and Epaphroditus try to be good examples as well. As Paul wrote to the Philippians from prison, he had several purposes in mind: (1) to tell them that Epaphroditus had recovered from a serious illness; (2) to encourage them in their faith; (3) to assure them that he was still in good spirits; and (4) to thank them for their continued support.
What does it mean to work out our salvation? Is this a call from Paul for Christians to do something that God has already accomplished? Paul had spoken to the Philippians about their faithfulness as believers but then tells them to work out their salvation. Is it really about them expending effort to produce salvation or is it something more? Join us this Sunday as we answer these questions.
