“Grace does not only subject the will to God, but it melts the will into God’s will, so that they are now but one will.  What a sweet satisfaction the soul must have in this condition, when all is made over to God.”  Jeremiah Burroughs, The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment.

So, for the Christian, there is one level higher than submitting to the will of God:  he can make God’s will and his own the same.  Join me in asking God for this measure of grace.
