daily repentance

“I do not think any efforts of my own will can end once and for all this (sin)…  Only God can.  I have good faith and hope He will.  Of course, I don’t mean I can therefore, as they say, ‘sit back.’  What God does for us, He does in us.  The process of doing it will appear to me…to be the daily or hourly repeated exercises of my own will in renouncing this attitude, especially each morning, for it grows all over me like a new shell each night….  And this, so far as I can yet see, must be begun again every day.”

C.S. Lewis, from “A Slip of the Tongue” (The Weight of Glory)
