"Everything that is of the Lord is very real. And what is real with the Lord has got to become real with us. He is a real God! The reality of God has got to be established in us and it can only be done in this way. Our very union with Him must be established upon the basis of sharing His reality. "Conformed to the image of His Son", you see, is the basis and the object, according to the Word, of the Holy Spirit's activity."
