Today's Mental Image:
And he will lovingly embrace rebirth and transformation.
He will long to go to God's embrace
To at last be made into a new creation (transformed).
Train up a child in the way he should go -
And he will follow God and God alone
As he sheds "childish things" -
The rules and mannerisms you have taught him.
For after maturity all things must come from Christ alone.
Nonetheless even then they can only come redemptively
By the empowerment of the Holy Spirit
In a heart sold out to God.
