Work Out Your Own Salvation; A Simple Exercise

Therefore, my beloved, as you 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

FOR IT IS GOD WHO WORKS IN YOU both to will and to do for His good pleasure. – Philippians 2:13

In math and physics, there is this equation in Newtonian mechanics which goes thus;

V = U + aT

U is initial velocity
a is acceleration
T is time

Thus, when a moving object accelerates, its final velocity is the initial velocity added to the product of acceleration and the time taken to accelerate.

This is a standard equation in Newtonian physics. Whether you like it or not, V is always equal to U + aT.

Here’s a little test.

Fola is driving on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway at a velocity of 80 km/hr. The road is free, so Fola steps on the pedal and accelerates at 400 km/h^2. After 3 minutes, what is his new velocity?

Bear in mind that whether you work it out or not, the answer will be the same
If you get the answer right, V is U+aT
And if you get it wrong, V is still U+aT

It is a faithful equation

That’s exactly what it means to work out your salvation.
Working out your salvation has nothing to do with working for your salvation
Working out your salvation has nothing to do with doubting the faithfulness of God.
God’s V will always be equal to God’s U+aT

It is a finished business

You are sitting down there saying “Read the next verse, For it is God that worketh in you!….God has done everything! There is nothing for me to do!! Glory!

No, dear fellow, not glory. Shame. Calm down. Don’t be lazy.

You are not working FOR the u or the v
You are working OUT the u

By adding aT

God has given you U
He has given you a
And He has given you T

God has worked everything into you. Now He says “To your U, add aT”

To get V

As His divine power HAS GIVEN TO US ALL THINGS THAT PERTAIN TO LIFE AND GODLINESS, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue. 2 Peter 1:3

Meaning, Initial velocity + aT

BUT ALSO FOR THIS VERY REASON, GIVING ALL DILIGENCE, ADD TO YOUR FAITH virtue, to virtue knowledge, – 2 Peter 1:5

Meaning, work it out

For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. – 2 Peter 1:8

2 Peter 1:11
For so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
.
[They go from strength to strength, everyone of them appears before God in Zion (Psalm 84:7)]

Meaning….Final velocity.

That’s what it means to WORK something OUT. In this case, your (great eternal) salvation.

You are not adding anything but what God has given you to add! Your working it out cannot add to it or change from it or change it

It will only make V real in your experience.
Or not.

So what is your answer to my little test,
Or you think I forgot?

Cheers.
