Much of our difficulty as seeking Christians stems from our unwillingness to take God as He is and adjust our lives accordingly . . . .
God being who and what He is, and we being who and what we are, the only thinkable relation between us is one of full Lordship on His part and complete submission on ours. . . .
The pursuit of God will embrace the labor of bringing our total personality into conformity to His. And this not judicially, but actually.
