it is only by the grace of God that a human being can do anything good. Christ Himself says, "None is good but God." So let us not congratulate ourselves for merely cooperating with God and His grace when we do even what we think is a great act of goodness. All glory belongs to Him. A changed person only gives God that glory when he displays works of goodness that are truly only God's. A person with a renewed mind is an abode to God and he does only those that God will do in his place. A human being needs God's Spirit even to train and bend his will to cooperate with God's grace. Salvation itself is only His gift freely given as something won by His Son and shared with those who will accept Jesus' offer by following His commands and living as He lived on earth. The terms of agreement are unconditional and irrevocable. We owe everything to Him, even our very energy to offend Him!
