C. S. Lewis on Spiritual Formation

A man far ahead of his time, Lewis understood the difference between Christian lifestyle and Spiritual Formation.

“After a man has tried his level best to practice the Christian virtues, and found that he fails … he discovers his bankruptcy. Now, once again, what God cares about is not exactly our actions. What he cares about is that we should be creatures of a certain kind of quality — the kind of creatures He intended us to be — creatures related to Himself in a certain way.”

— The Joyful Christian, 133
