NEVER TO CEASE FROM WORKING YOUR SALVATION OUT WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING! At least, make that your goal! Because, even though you're Born Again, you still have the Old Man of the Flesh who wants you to forget all of that "GOD Stuff" and get you to just party your life away.

Live through faith in HIM and you will have peace with God.
Faith in what YOU do will only bring the wrath of God.
Its not what we do, its what HE did for you.

I believe Cathrine makes a good point.

We are to never cease as long as we are here in these mortal bodies. To cease to work out our own salvation leads to us being "lukewarm" (Rev 3:16), and that is a bad thing.

Lord bless you all,

At absolutely no point. Please I must stress that. God is getting His people ready for Heaven. Do not become slothful. It will be treated as WICKEDNESS.

The apostle John wrote in his first epistle that perfect love casts out fear. So love should increase as fear decreases.
---John1944 on 10/30/07

When we stand before the Throne of Christ, we will be able to cease fear and trembling.

NEVER while in our fleshly bodies.

We are always working it out. The greek word for salvation is "SOZO" It means many things. here are some:to be whole, rescued, healthy,safe, delivered, protected,do well, preserved. These are all things we work at daily. We should take them seriously. Salvation doesn't always refer to our ticket to heaven.

When we are perfect and just like Jesus.

Short answer-Never
---Pharisee on 9/26/06

When we hear that His most joyful voice: Come, O blessed of My Father; inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

Even St. Paul would not say, "There's a crown of righteousness laid up for me," until the end of his life.
