Why are you doing it?

The difference between being obsessive and being radically normal has nothing to do with the magnitude of your sacrifice or how strange it sounds to others. If your sacrifice is based on guilt, obligation, or legalism, you’re being obsessive. However, if you do something because it’s your joy to obey God in that way, you’re being radically normal.—Radically Normal, electronic edition

At last! A voice of sanity! I'm liking where this book is going. It reminds me in many ways of Watchman Nee's Normal Christian Life. Nee contended that the normal Christian life was to be victorious and sin-free. Not what most would call "normal!" This author is doing the same—and he's right!
