But when I found God so kind

While I regarded God as a tyrant I thought my sin a trifle; But when I knew Him to be my Father, then I mourned that I could ever have kicked against Him. When I thought God was hard, I found it easy to sin; but when I found God so kind, so good, so overflowing with compassion, I smote upon my breast to think that I could ever have rebelled against One who loved me so, and sought my good.

A New Identity

There is no antithesis between faith and works. Humans cannot live without acting. You cannot be without doing. You will, in other words, work. The question is merely from which identity will you work.

--Clyde Snodgrass
