… a calm and joyful non-compliance with evil

I love this, from Dallas Willard:\r\n\r\n”Seeing God for who he is enables us to see ourselves for who we are.\r\n\r\n”This makes us bold, for we see what clearly what great good and evil are at issue, and we see that it is not up to us to accomplish it but up to God who is more than able. We are delivered from pretending, from being presumptuous about ourselves, and from pushing as if the outcome depended on us. \r\n\r\n”We persist without frustration.\r\n\r\n”We practice calm and joyful non-compliance with evil of any kind.\r\n\r\n”We will do the very best we know. We will work hard, even self-sacrificially, but we do not carry the load and our ego is not involved in any way with this mission and the ministry. In our love of Jesus and his Father we truly have abandoned our life to him.\r\n\r\n“Our life is not an object of deep concern any more.”\r\n\r\nDallas Willard: The Great Omission
