Eugene Peterson on the Contemplative Life, quote 4

Peterson on the second way the Christian life is contrary to most things American;
We cannot participate in God's work but then insist on doing it in our own way. We cannot participate in the building of God's kingdom but then use the devil's tools and nails. Christ is the way as well as the truth and the life. When we don't do it his way, we mess up the truth and we miss out on the life.
