God’s Part and Man’s Part in Salvation:
As opposed to me stumbling through this topic trying to express it, permit me to direct you to an article that is well written and very definitive on the subject.
It is a bit lengthy for a quick blog read, but I assure you it is well worth it.
This article is by John Reisinger. I have a link to his site here on my blog (Sound of Grace), yet I want to direct your attention to this as I find it extremely helpful.
May The LORD guide you by His Spirit.
