Christ Says, “Give Me All”

Christ says, “Give me all.  I don’t want so much of your time and so much of your money and so much of your money and so much of your work: I want you.  I have not come to torment your natural self, but to kill it.  No half-measures are any good.  I  don’t want to cut off a branch here and a branch there.  I want to have the whole tree down.  I don’t want to drill the tooth, or crown it, or stop it, but to have it out.”

– C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

as quoted by Idleman, Kyle; Not a Fan: Becoming a Completely Committed Follower of Jesus; Zondervan; copyright 2011; Grand Rapids, MI; Kindle Edition; page 166
