Section I - Knowing the Will of God

Work out your SALVATION

Holding Fast / Holding Forth

Work in scientific terms, is energy (activity) in direct proportion to the amount of force applied to it. Work, therefore, is not something that we do, but an action caused by the eternal force of Jesus Christ who is pulling us forward in Him causing us to work as a result of our place in Him. We hold fast to Him and because He is moving forward, we hold forth as light to shine as stars and we become a light unto the world.

Philippians 1:6

6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: (KJV)

Philippians 2:12-16

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.

13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain. (KJV)

Colossians 1:12-13

12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: (KJV)
