Re-examining The Idea Of "Christian Progress" ~ Spontaneity (Part 3)

"What is a truly good work, one that might qualify as the fruit of sanctification? One, I think, that is free, uncalculating, genuine, spontaneous. It would be like a mother who runs to pick up her child when it is hurt.  There is no calculation, no wondering about progress, morality or virtue. There is just the doing of it, and then it is completely forgotten. The right hand doesn‟t know what the left is doing. Good works in God‟s eyes are quite likely to be all those things we have forgotten! True sanctification is God‟s secret."
