Servants Who Become Sons

Screwtape (senior devil) addressing his nephew Wormwood about what God wants:
“He really does want to fill the universe with a lot of loathsome little replicas of Himself--creatures whose life, on its miniature scale, will be qualitatively like His own, not because He has absorbed them but because their wills freely conform to His. We want cattle who can finally become food; He wants servants who can finally become sons.”
C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters (p.37)
