“The Christian way is different. It’s 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. I have not come to torment your natural self, but to kill it. 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. In fact I will give you Myself: My own will shall become yours. My own life will become yours.’”
– C. S. Lewis
