Vital Christian experience is so simple: Christ’s will is your will.  You are only Christian to the extent that this is true; you are not one inch further than that in spite of all your professions.  The word “Christian” means “Christ’s man,” and whenever your will diverges from His will, then at that point you are not His man.  You belong to Him only when you think as He thinks and loves as He loves and will as He wills.  When you accept His commandments as the principle of your life, His example as the pattern to follow, and His providence, whether is seems to be for good or ill – when you accept thankfully all that is sufficient for your need, then you are His man.   – Alan Redpath
