A daring journey for daughters and sons

We are God’s children, but we must become His sons and daughters… No more than an earthly parent, God cannot be content to have only children. He must have sons and daughters – children of His soul, of His spirit, of His love – not merely in the sense that He loves them, or even that they love Him, but in the sense that they love like Him, love as He loves.
