Being Good – C S Lewis

“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.”

— C. S. Lewis, The C. S. Lewis Bible, p 1335
