Too Easily Satisfied

"I am persuaded that the problem with the body of Christ is not that we are dissatisfied with what we do not have, but that we are all too satisfied with what we do have. We are comfortable with a little bit of holiness, a little bit of ministry, a little bit of sacrifice, a little bit of wisdom, a little bit of the satisfying glory that only the grace of Christ is able to give us. I am deeply persuaded that we must resist with all our might the kind of self-satisfied spirituality that marks the life of so many believers."

-Paul Tripp, Broken Down House, pp. 94-95.
