Holiness does not consist in mystical speculations, enthusiastic fervors, or uncommanded austerities; it consists in thinking as God thinks, and willing as God wills.

The Holy Bible, 2 Thessalonians 3:5

And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.

To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.

Come & Follow Whom?

The two tables of the Law & the deity of Christ
Indeed every phrase in the short section possess a corresponding part, so that the purposed order of the entire conversation becomes very obvious. The Lord was not merely confirming the young man’s sinfulness, but he answered the young man’s question regarding eternal life. But to the point, he made himself God, and the worthy object of the ruler’s faith, saying, “come and follow me”
