If someone with boundless patience and creativity were committed to changing you little by little for good, you wouldn’t have to be discouraged about how feeble and filthy you are right now.
“If we let him – for we can prevent him if we choose – he will make the feeblest and filthiest of us into a . . . dazzling, radiant, immortal creature, pulsating all through with such energy and joy and wisdom and love as we cannot now imagine. . . .” C. S. Lewis
“[W]e shall be like Him. . . .” 1 John 3:2
