Love God And Do As You Like

A selection from a letter by William Still to his congregation, Gilcomston South Church of Scotland, Aberdeen, November, 1946:

St. Augustine, you know, had a motto – ‘Love God and do as you like.’ This is a very sound maxim, and fully Scriptural. But it is the second part that attracts us. If we really love God, we shall do what He likes us to do.
