Daily Thought: Vigorously Do God's Will

"'Thy will be done.' But a great deal of it is to be done by God's creatures; including me.  The petition, then, is not merely that I may patiently suffer God's will but also that I may vigorously do it.  I must be an agent as well as a patient.  I am asking that I may be enabled to do it.  In the long run I am asking to be given 'the same mind which was also in Christ.'" ~ C. S. Lewis; The Joyful Christian, p. 87

Now that's a real God!

Thanks.
