Philippians 2:1-13

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any incentive of love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.

Do nothing from selfishness or conceit, but in humility count others better than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross.

Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 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 God is at work in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.

My point is this , I've driven myself crazy wondering if I'm doing right or if I will make into Heaven, it can drive you insane thinking about it. However I do feel that we just can't take certain parts of the Bible that we like and disregard what we don't like. I believe we have to take it as it says no matter how hard it may be to swallow. Food for thought.

I think perhaps a look at the historical background of the church in Phillipi might be a real blessing where these verses are concerned.

Are U still grappling with this? Any more thoughts? I'd like to hear them.

I have always seen working out your salvation with fear and trembling to be more of a reverential thing.

U can pm me if U want.

Yeh good call.

I think that if you are concerned about it then its a good place to be in some ways.

Its not all about going to heaven anyway, is it, its about a relationship with Jesus, and as long as U have that then you can work out all the other things that you think that you arent doing right in the light of His grace, which is a good place to be.

My advice, just desire a friendship with Jesus more than anything else and everything else will follow.
