The power of God will be most evident in us when we are most diligent in the pursuit of righteousness. When we work, we know He is working. When we pursue righteousness righteously it is evidence that, through Him, we are resting fully in Him. In more personal terms, my diligence is the fruit of God's ongoing work in me; my humility is my response to Christ's finished work for me.
Excerpted from The Obedience Option: Because God Knows What's Good for Us, (Christian Focus, 2010).
