“In love He claims all” by C.S. Lewis

“He claims all, because He is love and must bless. He cannot bless us unless He has us. When we try to keep within us an area that is our own, we try to keep an area of death. Therefore, in love, He claims all. There’s no bargaining with Him.”

-–C. S. Lewis, “A Slip of the Tongue” in The Weight of Glory: And Other Addresses (New York: HarperCollins, 1949/2001), 190.
