Devotion and Delight

“… devotion that responds to grace does not so much seek to gain delight as to give delight to the Lord of grace. The love that is kindled by God’s love seeks not its own delight but brings tribute to the Beloved.”

Edmund P. Clowney, “Living Art: Christian Experience and the Arts” in God and Culture, edited by Carson and Woodbridge (Eerdmans, 1991) p. 252
