The news about personal responsibility in Christ is just news. True news but it certainly isn’t the good news. Personal responsibility isn’t the gift of God that is not of ourselves!!! That gift is entirely unmerited! (Romans 4:4, Ephesians 2:8-9) The good news is that our salvation is not a matter of personal responsibility! If it were, we would have something to boast about (and likely no one would get saved; if you think that you would, you just prove my point).
