Subject: Regarding our responsibility
I am reading the following verses and have difficulty reconciling them: Here, our Lord requires us to depend on Him completely: Joh 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: [color=red]FOR WITHOUT ME YE CAN DO NOTHING[/color]. But here, our Lord Himself seems to convey our responsibility for salvation: Rev 3:5 [color=blue]He that overcometh[/color], the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. Paul also received this revelation: Phi 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, [color=blue]work out your own salvation[/color] with fear and trembling. I look forward to Godís clarification on the matter.
