Ad fontes

No, we gain goodness by emptying ourselves of any goodness that we think dwells within us and finding our goodness in God alone. That is no small task. As C. H. Spurgeon said in his inimitable way in a sermon on the Beatitudes: “Our imaginary goodness is harder to conquer than our actual sin.” Christ is our goodness.— Vine Ripened Life
