Philippians 2:12-16

12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed— not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. 14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain.

    I struggle often with the “grumbling or arguing” part…I know that God works in me, but I don’t always approach my day with the right attitude.

    This really got me today! I need to be more grateful and obey.

    This passage reminds me of the song Blameless by Building 429. One of the sentences in the song is, “I am blameless.” God has made you blameless. No matter who you were before, you are blameless, shameless, because you’re not who you used to be.

    God makes it so clear, My attitude MATTERS!!!

    He is working in me to fulfill His good purpose… It is NOT acceptable for me to be grumbling & arguing. Again, His standard is higher than mine (applies to everything!!), but following His way with His attitude ultimately translates to being a light in this world.

    Not possible in my own strength, I need You Father! Continue your good work in me!

    I hold to the promise that laboring for every soul will never be in vain. God wants everyone saved for eternity.
