    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

God Works in You

Archibald T. RobertsonArchibald T. Robertson:

Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, 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. (Philippians 2:12-13 ESV)

A boy of four said joyfully to his mother, “When we do anything, it’s really God doing it.” So then, in one sense God does it all. God is the one who energizes in you both the impulse and the energy to carry out the impulse. . . .

We are in league with God. God’s grace is not an excuse for doing nothing. It is rather the reason for doing all. In religion as in nature, we are co-workers with God. We plant the seed, plant the plant, hoe it, and harvest it. But God gave us the seed and the soil and sends the rain and the sunshine and supplies that wondrous thing that we call life and makes it grow to perfection. “God has more life than anybody,” said a child. … Jesus is the author and the finisher of our faith (Heb. 12: 2). Happy is the man who finds God’s plan for his life and falls in with it. (“Realizing God’s Plan in Life”)
