"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    I see as 1Timothy 2:4 and 2Peter 3:9 stating Gods will is for all to be saved. Gods grace is given to all but it is our responsibility to respond with a godly sorrow. 2Cor 7:10. We have the God given ability to respond with a godly sorrow or a worldly sorrow. God does not save us first. If He did, there would be no reason for Jesus to shed His blood on the cross for us. God gave Esau the chance to repent with a godly sorrow but he did not because of his hard heart and will. Hebrews 12:17. God bless you and yours.
