Sanctification can really hurt and sting at times.

“Lord, spare us the insidious ego deception that we love God when really we love being told that we love God. Forbid that our being thanked is the bottom of our joy, rather than Christ being praised.” 

(from today’s post by John Piper over at the Desiring God blog).
