God’s Part and Man’s Part in the Plan of Salvation

To Sum the Whole Thing Up: A Collection of Writings by J. C. Roady

Anything that man could not do for himself in the saving of his soul God willingly did that for him. But God is not going to do something for us that we are able to do for ourselves. That being true, there are some things that God did, and there are some for us to do. God did His part through Christ, and we are to do our part by accepting Christ.

Christ brought to this world a gospel that was able to save the human family. (Mark 16:15-16; Gal. 1:8-10) It is our part to believe that gospel. (Rom. 1:16; Mark 16:16)

Christ brought to this world the grace that is able to save men. (Eph. 2:5-8) It is out part to let that grace lead us to repent of our sins. (Rom. 2:4)

Christ brought to this world a name in which salvation was placed. (Acts 4:11-12; Eph. 3:14-15) It is our part to confess that name before man. (Matt: 10:32; Phil 2:8-11)

Christ brought His blood to this world and shed it that man could be saved. (1 John 1:7; Pet. 1:18-25) It is our part to be baptized into that blood. (Rom. 6:1-6; Gal. 3:27) Christ established His Church here on earth. (Matt. 16:18; Eph. 5:25-27) It is our part to become a member of that Church. (Acts 2:47; Col. 1:18)

It was Christ who went away to prepare a place called heaven. (John 14:1) It is our part to live a faithful life that we can enjoy that place when life is over. (Rev. 2:10; Rev. 22:14)
