Salvation is from our side a choice, from the divine side it is a seizing upon, an apprehending, a conquest by the Most High God. Our accepting and willing are reactions rather than actions. The right of determination must always remain with God.
To be right with God has often meant to be in trouble with men.
We are right when, and only when, we stand in a right position relative to God, and we are wrong so far and so long as we stand in any other position.
