“Ah-HA!”

Gal 2 20Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

“The only haven of safety is to have no other will, no other wisdom, than to follow the Lord wherever He leads. Let this, then, be the first step… to abandon ourselves and devote the whole energy of our minds to the service of God.” (John Calvin)

Single-minded and joyous devotion to God and His will, to what God wants for us… and to service to Him and to others because of Him… is what the will transformed into Christ looks like. That is the outcome of spiritual formation with reference to the will, heart, or spirit. And this outcome becomes our character when it has become the governing response of every dimension of our being. Then we can truely be said to have “Put on Christ.”
