From C. S. Lewis’s classic, Mere Christianity:
Though our feelings come and go, His [God’s] love for us does not. It is not wearied by our sins, or our indifference; and, therefore, it is quite relentless in its determination that we shall be cured of those sins, at whatever cost to us, at whatever cost to Him. — C. S. Lewis
In the passion and death of Jesus Christ, we’ve seen the cost to God. How long will we cling to our sins and drive up our cost?
C. S. Lewis, “Charity,” in Mere Christianity (1952).
