Yesterday one of my spiritual mentors died. I didn’t personally know Dallas Willard, but he has influenced my life through his books and his teachings. Today I want to bless you with some of his wisdom.
If we as Christ’s people genuinely enter Christ’s Way of the Heart, individuals will find a sure path toward becoming the persons they were meant to be: thoroughly good and godly persons, yet purged of arrogance, insensitivity, and self-sufficiency. Christian assemblies will become what they have been in many periods of the past and what the world desperately calls for today: incomparable schools of life —life that is eternal in quality now, as well as unending in quantity.
Dallas Willard, The Renovation of the Heart, p. 25
Rest in peace Dallas and thank you for being faithful to the call God placed on your life.
