The Plague of Passivity

Do you like to say you're waiting on God, when He's actually waiting on you to get busy?

"God expects and encourages us to make choices, confident that He's already determined how to fit our choices into His sovereign will.  Passivity is a plague among Christians.  It's not just that we don't do anything; it's that we feel spiritual for not doing anything.  We imagine that our inactivity is patience and sensitivity to God's leading.  At times it may be; but it's also quite possible we are just lazy."  ~ Kevin DeYoung, "Just Do Something"
