If God were to withhold participation, the creation itself would collapse. Humankind is eternally linked to and empowered by God. In the spiritual reading for this week, Randy Maddox points out that God’s grace works powerfully but not irresistibly. God does not rob us of our liberty and freedom or force us to walk in holiness. But God’s grace does invite us compellingly and seek to persuade us powerfully to walk in companionship with the One who has made us and redeemed us. If God is sovereign, then we can pray confidently and boldly for the redemption of the world, the conversion of evil to good, the transformation of a timid church to a faithful church, the renewal of a morally bankrupt society to one of justice and mercy, and the salvation of our own troubled souls.

We do indeed, use all the lawful means we know, to prevent the “good which is in us from being evil spoken of:” But if the neglect of known duties be the one condition of securing our reputation, why, fare it well; we know whom we have believed, and what we thus lay out He will pay us again. Your son already stands before the judgment-seat of Him who judges righteous judgment; at the brightness of whose presence the clouds remove: His eyes are open, and he sees clearly whether it was “blind zeal, and a thorough mistake of true religion, that hurried him on in the error of his way;” or whether he acted like a faithful and wise servant, who, from a just sense that his time was short, made haste to finish his work before his Lord’s coming, that “when laid in the balance” he might not “be found wanting”.
