In the first of ‘Cultivating Faithfulness’ the analogy of breathing was used as a way to contemplate our life in Christ. Breathing in God’s word and living out the life it gives. If faithfulness is to hear and obey God’s word, what does this look like? This second in the series develops this with the help Paul’s letter to the Philippians 2:12-18, in particular chapter 2 verse 13.

Salvation is the gift of God – we were saved, we are being saved, we will be saved. Faithfulness is co-operating with the divine power at work in us.
