“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.
Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life…”
-Philippians 2:12-16 ESV
Father, thank you for your Word. Graft us to the True Vine today and every day, and teach us what it means to abide when all we want to do is produce. Help us to rest in your never-stopping love. Amen.
