Recovering the same mind in us that was in Christ Jesus requires something akin to Alcoholics Anonymous for Christians.
The faith of a Christian is the sure confidence that God has done something so profoundly revolutionary in our innermost being that everything about us is being made new.
“Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.” (Jesus)

The cross cannot be reduced to a single day of Jesus life—it is the heart of God from before time.
“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (Jesus)
The reason most of us are stuck is we do not have the kinds of relationships it takes to sustain the level of work the Holy Spirit wills to do in our lives.
