yet one more great turn of phrase

This is starting to look like a series. Anyway, I came across this wonderful, graphic turn of phrase in Ellen Charry's essay, "The Grace of God and the Law of Christ" (Interpretation [2003]: 34–44):
Paul's grand exposition of the Christian life is 1 Corinthians. Paul declares that God is not interested in notching foreskins on his belt, but that we keep God's commandments (7:19). (37–38; my emphasis)
