We start with man and the picture is grim we bring nothing to God but a rotting corpse. Unresponsive to the anything but the saving power of God. Then God in His glorious triune nature works together by the counsel of His own will to save man. First God the Father must elect a particular people for His Son to save. Jesus, God the Son then sets out to accomplish this very work and saves every single one. Every sheep given to Him know His voice and respond to the Call that God the Holy Spirit sends to them. This salvation, this good work God has began in us, will be seen all the way to completion. It wasn’t started by us and it certainly won’t be finished by us but by the Author and the Finisher of our faith.
