Dear Steve:

Yes, indirectly, all that God accomplishes through us depends on us doing what He wants us to do. But it is GOD, not we, who bring about the doing. This is the Truth of Scripture, however, few in the world give a hoot about what the Scriptures say:

"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"

WHY?

"For [for means 'because'] it is GOD [Who? GOD! Men? No, GOD!] which works in you BOTH TO WILL AND TO DO of His good pleasure" (Phil. 2:12-13).

Is there a church anywhere on earth that believes this Scripture?  I know of none.

God be with you,

Ray
