You Must Do Your Part
No man can save himself from his sins, but everyone must turn to the Lord, in His appointed way, and look to Him alone for salvation. The Lord Jesus Christ and He alone, has authority to forgive sin and save souls.
In the conversion of man, there must be cooperation between God and man. God presents the evidence to prove that Jesus Christ is His Son, but man does the believing. God offers the motive to induce man to repent, but man does the repenting. God persuades man to confess His Son, but man does the confessing. God appeals to man to be baptized, but man chooses to be baptized. God provides the strait and narrow path, which leads to life everlasting, but man must walk in it.
