Being open to the transforming Spirit of our Holy God requires
vulnerable submission in the safety of His grace.
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ
—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 2:4-6, ESV
