If God is in control of all things, what is my role in spiritual growth? Should I "sit back" and wait for God to grow me, or should I "work hard" as if it all depends upon me?
Paul offers insight into these questions in Philippians 2:12-18. Listen to his strong advice, "...work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure."
Spiritual growth is to be pursued with confidence with full dependency on God's all-powerful control.
