from Chapter 3: Full Recovery

“we’re not seeking God to get a sticker from Him or an attaboy. We’re seeking Him to enjoy even greater intimacy with Him, to get even closer to His heart, to open more and more of those inner closets where we’ve tried to restrict access to Him, thinking He wouldn’t like what He sees, thinking He might reject us if He knew.”

“The reason why we study His Word, why we attack our sin, why we share generously from our resources, and why we serve the people around us is not to persuade Him to love us. We do these things because He already does love us . . . and because He wants us to dig even deeper into the treasury of His blessing, into the joy and sweetness and abundant living His gospel unlocks for us.”
