Thoughtful Thursdays: Elyse Fitzpatrick

“Other forms of obedience simply don’t measure up, because love for God isn’t the motive. And if love isn’t the motive, your obedience will always be motivated by love for yourself. There’s only one Person whose opinion really matters, and all the rest of our guilt is just our desire to approve of ourselves and make ourselves happy.”

Comforts from the Cross – p. 21
