About This Sermon:


Philippians 2:12-18
Personal Responsibility

Personal Responsibility: What the text is NOT saying
Phil. 1:1: Paul was writing to believers
Paul was not promoting a self-help gospel

The Christian life is a call to personal responsibility
Phil. 2:12
Work out: to achieve by toil
It is a command

Work out your salvation
Salvation: deliverance, or to preserve
Clearly in context it means to preserve and speaks of sanctification

Personal responsibility to grow in the faith brings us into alignment with the power and purpose of God’s plan
Phil. 4:13
1 Thes. 2:13

Personal responsibility to know God’s Word
Phil. 2:14
Titus 1:9
Heb. 5:11-14
2 Peter 1:8

Personal responsibility: What are you willing to do for HIM?
