Philippians

Lesson 3

Fear & Trembling


Fear and trembling is the disposition of one who understands the stakes that are involved, the possibility of failure, and brings to task the best effort possible, shrinking from carelessness, over confidence or presumption.
What powerful motivation! We must shrink from carelessness lest we frustrate

the work of God in us. But what assurance! God is at work in us, and, with Paul, we can be confident that God will finish what He began (1:16), if we cooperate with His purpose. My mind overflows with wonder. God is at work in me and my obedience is simply my cooperation with His purpose to bring me to glory. ~L. A. Mott, Jr. - Thinking Through Philippians, pg.53
