Philippians 2:12

King James Version

12 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.

What is "due" diligence?

In spiritual terms it's very different.

It's not what the world programmed us to do.

It's what the WORD of GOD wants us to do.

To believe in JESUS.

To love GOD, and others.

To listen to the HOLY SPIRIT.

To live by the Bible.

That's what due diligence is.

As you shall see from these verses:

Exodus 15:26

King James Version

26 And said, 

If thou wilt diligently hearken 

to the voice of the Lord thy God, 

and wilt do that which is right in his sight, 

and wilt give ear to his commandments, 

and keep all his statutes, 

I will put none of these diseases upon thee, 

which I have brought upon the Egyptians: 

for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

Proverbs 10:4

King James Version

4 He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: 

but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.

27 He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: 

but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.

but the slothful shall be under tribute.

but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.

King James Version

29 Seest thou a man diligent in his business? 

he shall stand before kings; 

he shall not stand before mean men.

Ecclesiastes 9:10

King James Version

10 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, 

do it with thy might; 

for there is no work, 

nor device, 

nor knowledge,

nor wisdom, in the grave, 

whither thou goest.

Acts 17:11

King James Version

11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, 

in that they received the word 

with all readiness of mind, 

and searched the scriptures daily, 

whether those things were so.

1 Corinthians 15:58

58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, 

be ye stedfast, unmoveable, 

always abounding in the work of the Lord, 

forasmuch as ye know that your labour 

is not in vain in the Lord.

for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Philippians 3:14-15

King James Version

14 I press toward the mark 

for the prize of the high calling of God 

in Christ Jesus.

15 Let us therefore, 

as many as be perfect, 

be thus minded: 

and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, 

God shall reveal even this unto you.

Colossians 3:23-24

King James Version

23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, 

as to the Lord, and not unto men;

24 Knowing that of the Lord 

ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: 

for ye serve the Lord Christ.

2 Timothy 2:15-16

King James Version

15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, 

a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,

rightly dividing the word of truth.

16 But shun profane and vain babblings: 

for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

James 1:12

King James Version

12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: 

for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, 

which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

2 Peter 1:10-11

King James Version

10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, 

give diligence to make your calling and election sure: 

for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you 

abundantly into the everlasting kingdom 

of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

2 Peter 3:13-14

King James Version

13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, 

look for new heavens and a new earth, 

wherein dwelleth righteousness.

14 Wherefore, beloved, 

seeing that ye look for such things, 

be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, 

without spot, and blameless.
