My Spiritual Growth Is a Collaborative Effort
In summary of Philippians 2:13 it says, “For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.”
God is at work within you, helping you to obey and work doing what he wasn't done through me
What this means to me:
God is always at work within me. He helps direct my desire and gives me the power to do what his will is. As I follow Christ, I gravitate more and more each day to act a new way. I slowly let go of old routines and develop new habits and ways of thinking. Spiritual growth is a collaborative effort between myself and the Holy Spirit. God is working in me, but I must also work out. God has given me a new life; now I’m responsible to develop it "with fear and trembling." This means I am to take my spiritual growth seriously, because it will determine my role in eternity.
