Struggle = to rest in what He freely gives

The fight is not the oppressive struggle to earn God’s final rest, but the satisfying struggle to rest in the peace that Jesus freely gives. . . .Don’t think of striving to get his favor. Think of striving with the favor of his help.

-John Piper, What Jesus Demands from the World, 184-5.
