Midweek reminder: C.S. Lewis x2

There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, "Thy will be done," and those to whom God says, "All right, then, have it your way."

[To have faith in Christ] means, of course, trying to do all that He says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice. Thus if you have really handed yourself over to Him, it must follow that you are trying to obey Him. But trying in a new way, a less worried way. Not doing these things in order to be saved, but because He has begun to save you already. Not hoping to get to Heaven as a reward for your actions, but inevitably wanting to act in a certain way because a first faint gleam of Heaven is already inside you.

Both quotes from C.S. Lewis; both were needed reminders in my week.
