Renounce All Satisfaction That Does Not Honor God

Renounce All Satisfaction That Does Not Honor God

Matthew 7:21; 12:50; 21:31; Mark 3:35; John 4:34; 5:30; 6:38

Every satisfaction offered to the senses that is not for God’s honor and glory you must renounce and reject for the love of Jesus Christ, who, while upon earth, had, and sought for, no other pleasure than doing the will of His Father; this, He said, was His meat and drink.

John of the Cross (1542 – 1591)
