The Laws of Christ for Common Life. Chapter 7. Courtesy and the Spirit of Service

“The Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister,” and if we are “in Christ,” we, too, shall find it “more blessed to give than to receive.” We misconceive the true genius of the Christian revelation if we suppose that it allows us to make it our chief business to care for our own interests — even for our own salvation. We trust Christ to save us, and this leaves us free to live for the welfare and salvation of other men.
