We work hard on our salvation, but it is God who gives us the desire and the power to work out our salvation. Without the Holy Spirit’s help we would never be able to do what pleases God. But with His help we have both the DESIRE and the POWER to please God.
Philippians 2:12-13 – Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. (NLT)
This picture was taken at Clearwater Beach, Florida in January 2019. My kids built the sandcastle. By the end of the day it was a crumbling reminder that our efforts alone will only crumble. It is God who enables us to do what pleases Him.
