God’s Sovereignty in Salvation

Is God sovereign in the salvation of sinners? Consider: man is dead in sin and cannot repent, believe, or love God until after he is born again; God will never be disappointed in the accomplishment of His will; God’s love is everlasting, not dependent upon man’s response, and nothing can separate us from His love; God would be unjust to demand the penalty of sin at the hands of His Son and then a second time at the hands of an unrepentant sinner in the lake of fire; if God’s sovereignty is limited by man’s will, then man exercises more power over eternity than God does; man would deserve some of the glory if man had to do his part, but all the glory belongs to God.
