The Pleasures of Surrender

June 19, 2013

Too often what passes for Christianity today is a life legislated by the good example of Jesus and frightened by the threat of divine punishment. But the person who is afraid of sinning because of hellfire isn’t really afraid of sinning; he’s only afraid of burning. He has no love for salvation. He has no stimulus for action except fear and pride. But true faith is swallowed up with such a sense of the glory of Christ that the heart transcends choice in the pleasures of surrender.
