Wow-- an amazing truth...

The Heart of Sanctification

“For, until men feel that they owe everything to God, that they are cherished by his paternal care, and that he is the author of all their blessings, so that naught is to be looked for away from him, they will never submit to him in voluntary obedience; no, unless they place their entire happiness in him, they will never yield up their whole selves to him in truth and sincerity.”

- John Calvin, The Institutes of the Christian ReligionBk I, Ch. 2
