 “Work out your own salvation.” This has nothing to do with saving a sinner but what was needful for “saints in Christ Jesus” (ch. 1:1,6) who were undergoing difficulties en route to the heavenly goal. (Help on Hard Verses by A.C. Brown)
 While he was among them he had labored; now they were themselves engaged with the enemy, without the aid of Paul’s presence and spiritual energy. (Philippians 2 by J.N. Darby)
 It is to be carefully remarked here, that it is the very opposite of an exhortation to our own working in contrast with God’s effectual power. “Your own” is in contrast with Paul in his absence, who had labored for them, because God did work in them to will and to do. They were to work, because, if Paul was absent, God wrought in them. I have noticed already that salvation, every blessing, is looked at everywhere in this epistle as at the end of the Christian’s course. (Philippians 2 by J.N. Darby)
 When present with these believers, the apostle had kept them from the attacks of the enemy, but now, much more in his absence, they needed to be on their guard against adversaries without the Christian circle, and strifes within. (Philippians 2 by H. Smith)
 God was pleased, even whilst the apostle was alive, to set him aside and to prove the power of faith where he was not. (Philippians 2 by W. Kelly)
 It is not the dread of losing the Savior of their souls, but because they felt for His name (Philippians 2 by W. Kelly)
