Jerry Bridges on Sanctification

"So progressive sanctification very much involves our activity. But it is an activity that must be carried out in dependence on the Holy Spirit. It is not a partnership with the Spirit in the sense that we each the believer and the Holy Spirit do our respective tasks. Rather, we work as He enables us to work. His work lies behind all our work and makes our work possible."

Jerry Bridges. Transforming Grace: Living Confidently in God's Unfailing Love
