Who Gets The Glory?

October 24, 2011

We’re saved when we hear the gospel and believe that message. But, why do we believe? We believe because God enables us to believe and thus He gets the glory. Even our faith is a gift (Ephesians 2:8). It is my faith but it is faith that has been given to me by God. Mitchell Chase explains:

But God does not believe for us, nor does he repent for us. The Bible never teaches salvation this way. When God enables a sinner to believe, that sinner then does the believing, and when God grants repentance to a sinner, that sinner then does the repenting. But because God did the granting, only God deserves the glory. God is glorified, and the sinner is saved.
