Historic spirituality situates spirituality in the story of the Triune God, who creates, became incarnate, took my humanity up into his, entered the suffering of the cross, and rose from the grave. God drew me up into himself and did for me what I could not do—He himself restored my union with himself. . . . Spirituality is a gift. The spiritual life is the surrendered life.
