Paul’s encouragement – Unity Through Humility – Elder Rene Flores
- What does emptying yourself mean? What nature of your old self have you given up for the sake of obedience to the Father? Philippians 2:7
- Who is our ultimate example of selfless humility? Matthew 11:29, John 13:12-17
- What are dead works? Philippians 2:3 How can we tell what dead works are and how does God deal with them? 1 Corinthians 3:13
- Why does Paul use “fear and trembling” when we work out our salvation? Proverbs 9:10
- What did we do to deserve God’s grace? Explain the difference between working for salvation and working out your sanctification.
“So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling.” Philippians 2:12
