They did not know how entire the consecration was that Jesus claimed. With others, who had some idea of what a very holy life a Christian ought to lead, the mistake was a different one: They could not believe such a life could be attained. Taking, bearing, and never for a moment laying aside the yoke of Jesus appeared to them to require such a strain of effort, and such an enormous amount of goodness that they assumed it was beyond their reach. The very idea of always, all the day, abiding in Jesus was too high—something they might attain to after a life of holiness and growth, but certainly not what an immature beginner was to start with.
In becoming one with Christ, there is a work God does and a work we have to do. God does His work by moving us to do our work. The work of God is hidden and silent; what we do is something distinct and tangible. Conversion and faith along with prayer and obedience are conscious acts of which we can give a clear account, while the spiritual awakening and strengthening that come from above are secret and beyond the reach of human sight. So often when the believer tries to say, ‘‘I am in Christ Jesus,’’ he looks more to the work he has done than to that wondrous secret work of God, which united him to Christ.
