October 28th - Conforming to Christ

To live super-naturally is to share in the plenitude of Divine life that is in Christ Jesus; “I came that they may have life”.  Our status of being adopted is something we have from Him. We are but children of God in the measure that we conform to Him who, alone, is the true and only Son of the Father by right, and who yet wishes to have with Him a multitude of brethren through sanctifying grace.
