Salvation Requires Our Cooperation

While the whole human race was redeemed by Jesus’ Passion and Death, not a single soul was saved by this Infinite sacrifice…The fright comes from the fact that we who have already been redeemed can yet be damned.  Redemption is an accomplished fact; salvation for us is still only a possibility.  Salvation is a matter of cooperation.  Jesus does not do it alone!
