The Key to Contentment

Before conversion, before God wrought upon your souls, you were contented with the world without grace, though you had no interest in God nor Christ; why cannot you now be contented with grace and spiritual things without the world?

- Jeremiah Burroughs, The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment, p. 214

It would seem, in answer to the question, most appropriate to say "Because we don't fully let go of our self-centeredness on this side of glory." Praise be to God that the very grace that has saved us is there to guide us through the sanctification process until we see Christ.

1 Cor 13:8-13
