“Christian maturity is not a matter of doing more for God; it is God doing more in and through us. Immaturity is noisy with anxiety-fueled self-importance. Maturity is quietly content to pursue a life of obedient humility. Christian worship is an intentional act of redressing the proportions, the priorities–from me work for God to God working in me, which is the Holy Spirit.”
(Eugene Peterson, Practice Resurrection p. 222-23.)
