A kingdom hidden from willpower

John Dink is reminded (by a quote from Louis Berkhof) that God, and not man, is the author of sanctification:
"… it’s a sobering reminder, aimed at the ways we tend equate our Father’s house with bigger-faster-stronger living.  Instead, Jesus makes his home with those who mourn. He waits for the weak. He conquers by laying down his life. God’s kingdom is a gift for any receiver — yet, it is hidden from those armed with willpower instead of faith."
