Work Out Your Own Salvation

This lesson was taught by Dr. McLain on September 13, 1987. It is one of the final sermons delivered by Dr. McLain before his death.  He was engrossed in his studies and eager for all of us to realize our place in this economy and the wonderful promise of our hope for the future.  The lesson is found in Philippians 2:9-16 (KJV)

"9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 12 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. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. 14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings: 15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; 16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain,neither laboured in vain."
