C.S. Lewis quote

Found this insightful quote in C.S. Lewis's Mere Christianity:


"That is why the Christian is in a different position from other people
who are trying to be good. They hope, by being good, to please God if
there is one; or - if they think there is not - at least they hope to
deserve approval from good men. But the Christian thinks any good he
does comes from the Christ-life inside him. He does not think God will
love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He
loves us..."

God does not make you good, you do!

Ah yes, the project of Life is a partnership of sorts.
