Midweek Meditation: "Spiritual Disciplines Opens the Door" (Richard J. Foster)

"When we despair of gaining inner transformation through human powers of will and determination, we are open to a wonderful new realisation: inner righteousness is a gift from God to be graciously received. The needed change within us is God's work, not ours. The demand is for an inside job, and only God can work from the inside. We cannot attain or earn this righteousness of the kingdom of God; it is a grace that is given." (Richard J. Foster, Celebration of Discipline, London, UK: Hodder and Stoughton, 1989, p6)
