Edition 33-Wednesday’s Word

February 24, 2010 | My Jottings

The Christian way is different: harder, and easier.  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.  No half-measures are any good.  I don’t want to cut off a branch here and a branch there, I want to have the whole tree down…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.  I will give you Myself: my own will shall become yours.”

C.S. Lewis, from The Joyful Christian
