Bonhoeffer On Becoming . . .

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a theologian, martyr,  spiritual writer, musician,   pastor, writer of poetry and fiction and so much more.  His words challenge me and make me go deep within my soul for answers.  This quote from him takes something so complex, so amazing, so unthinkably humbling and beyond all comprehension and makes it as simple as it is, if we but trust in the Lord and surrender to Him.  Bonhoeffer writes:

“It is only because he became like us that we can become like him.” 
― Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship
