perspective

I am not saved by believing;
I realize I am saved by believing.

It is not repentance that saves me,
repentance is the sign that I realize what God has done in Christ Jesus.

The danger is to put the emphasis on the effect instead of on the cause.

I stand justified,
not because I am sorry for my sin,
not because I have repented,
but because of what Jesus has done.
