“He has called me, and I am His bondslave, His servant, His prisoner, and you are to live as the prisoners of Jesus Christ. ‘Ye are not your own; ye are bought with a price’ (I Cor 6:19-20). We have no right to live as we choose and as we please. We were the prisoners of Satan; we are now the prisoners of Jesus Christ. We should have no desire save to please Him. ‘Let nothing please or pain me, apart, O Lord, from Thee’ should ever be the expression of our constant desire. If we but saw and grasped the meaning of our calling, in all its parts, there would be no problem about Christian living. We would ‘count it our supreme delight to hear His dictates and obey’…”

- D. Martin Lloyd-Jones
