Work Out Your Own Salvation with Fear and Trembling

WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING: Just as it was written.

WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING: Just as it is written.

“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.”
Philippians 2:12

“Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”

What exactly does that mean?

Here is what the Jamieson-Faucett-Brown Commentary has to say about Philippians 2:12.

work out–carry out to its full perfection. “Salvation” is “worked in” (Php 2:13; Eph 1:11) believers by the Spirit, who enables them through faith to be justified once for all; but it needs, as a progressive work, to be “worked out” by obedience, through the help of the same Spirit, unto perfection (2Pe 1:5-8). The sound Christian neither, like the formalist, rests in the means, without looking to the end, and to the Holy Spirit who alone can make the means effectual; nor, like the fanatic, hopes to attain the end without the means.

your own–The emphasis is on this. Now that I am not present to further the work of your salvation, “work out your own salvation” yourselves the more carefully. Do not think this work cannot go on because I am absent; “for (Php 2:13) it is God that worketh in you,” &c. In this case adopt a rule different from the former (Php 2:4), but resting on the same principle of “lowliness of mind” (Php 2:3), namely, “look each on his own things,” instead of “disputings” with others (Php 2:14).

salvation–which is in “Jesus” (Php 2:10), as His name (meaning God-Saviour) implies.

with fear and trembling–the very feeling enjoined on “servants,” as to what ought to accompany their “obedience” (Eph 6:5). So here: See that, as “servants” to God, after the example of Christ, ye be so “with the fear and trembling” which becomes servants; not slavish fear, but trembling anxiety not to fall short of the goal (1Co 9:26,27; Heb 4:1, “Let us fear, lest a promise being left us of entering into His rest, any should come short of it”), resulting from a sense of our human insufficiency, and from the consciousness that all depends on the power of God, “who worketh both to will and to do” (Ro 11:20).

Elsewhere, Christians are urged to “give diligence to make your calling and election sure.”

“Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:”
2 Peter 1:10

Make Your Calling and Election Sure: End Times Survival

In other words, knowing that Jesus warned that “few there be that find”
eternal life, each Christian should make sure for himself that his salvation is firm.

The true believer should not trust anyone else to secure his eternal destination. The only trust should be in God’s Word and in God’s Word made flesh: Jesus Christ.

The Bible makes a great many promises to those who are eternally saved through Jesus Christ. But those promises are not for everyone who professes they are saved.  Which is why it is up to each man to work out his own salvation with fear and trembling.

Unfortunately, in the times in which we live, far too many have outsourced their salvation to agents of an enemy who seeks only to “steal, kill and destroy” [John 10:10].

The Christian should not leave such an important matter as his salvation in the hands of the TV preacher, the church, a pastor, or any man–no matter how celebrated, how learned or how authoritative.

“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
Matthew 7:14


“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
Romans 1:16

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 – (h/t:B)

Watchmen on the Walls

"Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;"

watchman-wall-pd "Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

--Ezekiel 33:1-6

More important than pomp, popularity, riches or recognition: we will be guilty of no man's blood upon our hands.
