Work Out Your Salvation: But How?

The words “work out your salvation” in Philippians 2:12 to me portrays that each believer is at a different place in their spiritual journey. For example, some Christians are struggling with issues of the flesh like pornography, drunkenness, anger, unbecoming language, etc. Other Christians are struggling with living out the fruits of the spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control). Still others are struggling with incorporating disciplines like prayer, Bible reading, attending church, fasting, etc. in their lives.

One area I see many Christians struggling to “work out their salvation” in is in the area of serving others. They may have a desire to “fulfill His good purpose” (Philippians 2:13) through serving but they don’t know how or where to start. Part of this struggle may come from well meaning Christian leaders who do know their purpose and are passionately living it out and living the Christian life with enormous time commitments and running at an extremely fast pace.

It's Time To Start Your Journey......

If the Christian life is a journey or a race (Hebrews 12:1) then we all are at a different place in the race and run the race at a different pace. Recognizing that we are at different places in the race and run at different paces, recently at PLACE Ministries we launched out first app called mySpiritualGifts.

My goal was to start where many are in their journey with a low level of time and commitment.  It takes about 15-20 minutes to take the spiritual gifts assessment on the app.  That may not sound like a lot of commitment, but for many who are not use to running the race that may be a lot for them.
