We want to cling to our natural virtues, while all the time God is trying to get us in contact with the life of Jesus Christ — a life that can never be described in terms of natural virtues. . . God does not take our natural virtues and transform them, because our natural virtues could never even come close to what Jesus Christ wants. No natural love, no natural patience, no natural purity can ever come up to His demands. But as we bring every part of our natural bodily life into harmony with the new life God has placed within us, He will exhibit in us the virtues that were characteristic of the Lord Jesus.
