Grace: ... ready to suffer to win its way

To speak of sin by itself, to speak of it apart from the realities of creation and grace, is to forget the resolve of God. God wants shalom and will pay any price to get it back. Human sin is stubborn, but not as stubborn as the grace of God and not half so persistent, not half so ready to suffer to win its way.

- Cornelius Plantinga, "Not the Way It’s Supposed to Be", pg 199
