A Relationship with God

“Sanctification is not man’s work with the help of God, but God’s work with the help of man, and that is something very different.” -Fr. Caffarel A dear friend of mine posted this quote last week and it instantly caught my eye. I was reflecting on it with one of my fellow sister’s in Christ and the question came up of “how much work does each side give?” Is it a 50/50 deal? Is it an 80/20 or 90/10 deal? As I thought about it more…none of those ratios felt right to me. God is never just 50% in or even 80% in…He is always 100% in! That also means that we should never just be 50% or 10% in…we also need to be 100% in! Our relationship with God should never be 50/50, it should be 100/100. At the end of the day, everything we do is first and foremost God’s work in this world…not ours. God works through us, we don’t work through God. Echoing the words of Fr. Caffarel….”that IS something VERY different.” Give God your all, don’t hold anything back. Walking Together, Sandra
