It’s vitally important to properly define the roles in eternal salvation, and see that Jesus performed the work of reconciliation. We were at enmity with God through our sin, but by the work of our mediator, we have been brought back into communion and fellowship with God by Jesus who reconciled us back to God. Now based on that fact, we are given knowledge of it by the word of reconciliation and called upon to believe it and be further reconciled unto God.
