The perfect love of God's will is a union so close that God Himself both utters and fulfills His will at the same instant in the depths of my own soul. Pure intention, in this highest sense, is a secret and spiritual word of God which not only commands my will to act, or solicits my co-operation, but fulfills what He says in me. The action is at once perfectly mine and perfectly His. But its substance comes entirely from Him. In me, it is entirely received: only to be offered back to Him in the silent ovation of His own inexpressible love.

We can never grow in grace by our own efforts. True grace flows from the heart of the Father through the love of Christ. To know God is for you, that He loves you, is the greatest source of security you will ever know. That is grace --- and that is what makes life worth living.
