Christians “work out” what God “works in”

What does God work in? The Holy Spirit’s witness. What does the Christian work out? The Holy Spirit’s witness manifested in the heart and life of a believer in Christ. The Holy Spirit’s witness is a “perfect” work that morally changes the unbelieving rebel against God into a believing and obedient saint of God.

The Spirit’s Witness flows from the blood of the everlasting covenant that Christ shed on the Cross of Calvary into the heart of a believer. God works in so much that a sinner is made right through the shed blood of Jesus Christ our Savior. Now, the child of God changed by Grace is able to work out things that are well pleasing in the eyes of God.

Moral righteousness comes from the redemptive work of Christ and flows into the believing soul. Forgiveness and righteousness are the result of God’s workmanship upon this believing soul. The Blood of the everlasting covenant allows God to work in so the Christian can work out.

Hebrews 13:20-21…Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ

Phillipians 2:12-14…Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

About rickroehm

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.
