If the life of a Christian is to be pleasing to God, it must be properly adjusted to him in all things. Too often we place the emphasis in our own lives upon the application of this principle to some single detail of our behavior or of our work for him. Often we fail, therefore, to appreciate either the extent of the adjustment called for or, at times even, the point from which it should begin. But God measures everything, from start to finish, by the perfections of his Son. Scripture clearly affirms that it is God’s good pleasure “to sum up all things in Christ . . . in whom also we were made a heritage” (Ephesians 1:9-11).
