It’s Flavel Friday. John Flavel makes a compelling case to be conformed to Christ. He says,
“Christ has conformed himself to you by abasing incarnation; how reasonable therefore is it that you conform yourselves to him in the way of obedience and sanctification? He came as near to you as it was possible for him to do, strive you therefore to come as near to Christ, as it is possible for you to do” (John Flavel, Works Volume 2, Method of Grace, Sermon 30, p.418).
