Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. - Philippians 2:12–13 (ESV) I'm thinking about starting a new program at Hope. I'm think of calling it the 'Tag-a-long' ministry. In this ministry, I'll come to your home and live with you for 72 hours. It won't be a teaching ministry. I'll just be around. I'll go with you to work and out on appointments. I'll just be there. Don't worry I won't get in the way. If I started the ministry by being with you, how would that change how you work? Or how would it change what happens in your home? How would it change your interactions with those in your life? We have a built-in tendency to act differently when we are being watched. We slow down when a cop drives by. Paul recognizes this idea. However, he wants to call the Philippians to a life of integrity and obedience if he is there or not. This week we continue to open up Philippians in chapter 2. Would you take a few mintues and read through the chapter to prepare your heart and mind to worship together?
