what does He really want?

Christ says, “Give me All.

I don’t want so much of your time and so much of your money and so much of your work: I want You.

I have not come to torment your natural self, but to kill it. No half measures are any good. I don’t want to cut off a branch there, I want to have the whole tree down. I don’t want to drill the tooth, or crown it, or stop it, but to have it out. Hand over the whole natural self, all the desires which you think innocent as well as the ones you think wicked– The whole outfit.

I will give you a new self instead. In fact, I will give you Myself: my own will shall become yours.”

–Clive Staples Lewis

    I love Lewis. Except when I don’t. But this is amazing.

    I also like the caption you put on your fully awesome SermonAudio link.

  • Quote of the Day

    “We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.”
    - A. W. Tozer
