Daily Thought: The Ball is in Our Court

"Everyone must be active in the process of their salvation and  transformation to Christlikeness. This is an inescapable fact.  But the initiative in the process is always God’s, and we would in fact do nothing without his initiative.  However, that initiative is not something we are waiting upon.  The ball is, as it were, in our court. God has invaded human history and reality.  Jesus Christ has died on our behalf, is risen, and is now supervising events on earth toward an end that he will certainly bring to pass, to the glory of God.  The issue  now concerns what we will do." ~ Dallas Willard,  The Renovation of the Heart, p. 82
