Dallas Willard Quote on Grace

The faith/works/grace debate has always peeved me.  It seems so simple to me (except when trying to balance it in my own life, that is).  I stumbled across this quote from Dallas Willard awhile back and found some clarity…

Currently we are not only saved by grace; we are paralyzed by it. We find it hard to see that grace is not opposed to effort, but is opposed to earning. Earning and effort are not the same thing. Earning is an attitude, and grace is definitely opposed to that. But it is not opposed to effort.
