God's Sovereignty & Man's Responsibility - Jeff Noblit

"You see, we think because God is sovereign we just kind of coast along and God builds His kingdom. Oh, no. He says three times, diligence, diligence, moral excellence, manly energy, get after it.(II Peter 1:5) Why? Because God’s sovereignty includes man’s responsibility. Don’t ever forget that. There’s a wicked, abhorrent teaching that’s called hyper-Calvinism. It goes too far. It takes God’s sovereignty into fatalism. And you must guard yourself from that and run from that and fight against that. We are responsible to diligently seek our God and serve our God."
