Helmut Thielicke wrote: "The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Give as much of yourself as you know, to as much of Christ as you know. It will cost you nothing, and it will cost you everything. But there will be a wonder after wonder, and every wonder true."
This seems to illustrate the process of holiness. Give all that we know of ourselves to all that we know of God. It is daily. It is consistent. It is developmental. It is a journey that will take a lifetime.
