In this video, we look at the phrases "work out your salvation with fear and trembling" found in Phi. 2:12 and "examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith" seen in 2 Cor. 13:5. Is Paul teaching that works are a requirement for salvation, or is he relating something completely different?
In this study, we look at several verses in context within Paul's letters which use similar language to highlight the true meaning of these verses. Afterwards, the story of the woman who touched the hem of Jesus's garment is read in Mark 5 to further illustrate the power of God's grace through faith. We don't work FOR our salvation, we work OUT our salvation! And this is accomplished by making sure we always have our focus on Jesus and what He did on the cross, rather than on ourselves and what we do in the flesh. By grace, through faith, in Christ alone!
