Numbers 2:1-34; Psalms 146:1-147:20; Mark 12:18-44

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. Philippians 2:12-13

Salvation is not of works, but it works. What Christ has done for us He works in us. It starts by the Spirit (Phil 1:6), continues by God (2:13) and is completed by the Son. “For our citizenship is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself” (3:20-21). It is all to the praise of the glory of His grace. —Harold G. Smith

Once far from God and dead in sin, no light my heart could see;
But in God’s Word the light I found, now Christ liveth in me. —Daniel Whittle
