Thomas Edison is reputed to have said ‘Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.’
Is our life as a Christian at all like that. Christ has done the 100% by His sacrifice on the cross. He has done everything necessary; we cannot earn salvation by ourselves. It is all of Him. But we are not to be passive. There are things we can do working with Him. We can be His hands and feet down here on earth. He has given us talents which are to be used in His work. We can learn what is His will for us. God has given us everything but He has graciously given us the privilege of working with Him. After all, His yoke is easy and His burden is light.
