“For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:30):
"Thus, in one sense, the road back to God is a road of moral effort, of trying harder and harder. But in another sense it is not trying that is ever going to bring us home. All this trying leads up to the vital moment at which you turn to God and say, "You must do this. I can’t."
~ C.S. Lewis (Mere Christianity)
"I have been crucified with Christ and I no long live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God."
~ Galatians 2:20
‘'In this text [Galatians 2:20], Paul suggests that the task of Christian living is fulfilled in a paradoxical way. It is totally the work of the individual; at the same it is totally the work of God.'
~ S. Grenz (Theology for the Kingdom of God)
