God and Man in Salvation

“We are not merely passive, nor yet does God do some and we do the rest. But God does all, and we do all. God produces all, and we act all. For that is what He produces, viz. our own acts. God is the only proper author and fountain; we only are the proper actors. We are, in different respects, wholly passive and wholly active.” - Jonathan Edwards (quoted in John Piper The Supremacy of God in Preaching, Baker House: Grand Rapids (1990), pg. 94.
