I will be your God

Through the word of the Cross received in faith, the new man, the man who serves God, is created, who no longer lives on himself and for himself, but on and for the love of God. This alone is true divine rule, where God rules through the free obedience of those who trust and love Him. Where the love of God actually reigns in the human heart the opposition between God’s will and the self-will of the creature has been overcome; there it has become true: “I will be your God, and ye shall be My people.”—Emil Brunner, The Christian Doctrine of Creation and Redemption, 300
