Philippians 2:9-13. Paul uses the word "therefore" twice, which means because of what I've just said reinforces the next thing he's about to say. In this segment Paul again uses Jesus as Our Great Example and he explains how God The Father has rewarded Jesus for His Humility and Obedience; and then Paul encourages The Church then and now to "work out your own salvation with fear and trembling . . . " Only God and us truly know the condition of our souls; as Christians we need to heed this command and for those outside of The Faith the come to the foot of The Cross and begin the journey of wrestling with God as Jacob did.
