Continuing the conversation begun in Part One, John and Laura continue the discussion on how God works in the lives of believers to grow us to become more like Him. John points out that for us to rightly understand what it means to be in relationship with God we have to understand what He is doing- that He is transforming us! God is not just blessing us, not just answering our prayers, not just being our heavenly Father in soft ways. But He is committed to grow us -sometimes even radically at work to change us to be more like His son. Understanding this can give us greater perspective on things we go through. It can also guide us to the important role we play in the process of us becoming more like Christ.
