Many people believe they can initiate their salvation, either through choosing to believe or on their own merits. Yet the Bible is clear that we can't take even the first step toward reconciliation with God on our own we are spiritually dead and can do nothing unless we are given new life. Matthew Barrett explores the doctrine of regeneration to show us what truly happens to us when we are saved. He compares the gospel call with the effectual call and shows us how God's gift of a new heart and new birth not anything we have done initiates our salvation.
