The Battle with Our Flesh | Philippians 2:12-13



12 So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.



  • Do you find yourself struggling with the desire and motivation to obey God? Do you tend to obey God out of obligation, or out of a relational desire to please and honor our savior?

  • How does this passage encourage you as you wrestle with your fleshly desire to sin?
