Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentiss (15)

What is a mature Christian? How does one recognize a mature Christian?

"Love to Christ becomes the abiding, inmost principle of his life; he loves Him rather for what He is than for what He has done or will do for him individually, and God’s honor becomes so dear to him that he feels personally wounded when that is called in question. And the will of God becomes so dear to him that he loves it best when it ‘triumphs at his cost.’"
