Salvation! God's work or ours? Does it matter? Every Christian without exception needs to know where he or she stands with regard to salvation. Did I save myself or did God save me? Obviously I saved myself by obeying the gospel, I repented and I believed.
However with regard to repentance and faith - was that me or was it God's gift to me? In other words, who initiated the process and who directed me in the first place? It does matter!
