Standing corrected

I have to rephrase something I put in that last post. It his by far NOT MY salvation. It is thy or his salvation. If it were MY salvation then that would mean that I could do it on my own and there is no way that I can do salvation on my own.

"Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit." (Psalms 51:12, KJV)

"My” salvation means I do it myself. I earn my salvation. I have a right to my salvation. It is mine, and it’s all about me."

"“Thy” salvation is about God – his gift, his promise, his sacrifice, his love. It is his to bestow, because it’s not about you – or me – it’s about God and his grace."

The above phrase was copied from The Purpose Driven Life Daily Devotional on 12-28-07
