Becoming your true name

Aidan Hart - TransfigurationI think love of God is becoming your true self, becoming the name that God has given you, which means using all your gifts, your abilities, your character.
Sometimes life with God is seen as self denial in the sense of “do whatever you don’t want to do, so you end up just destroying yourself.
But life with God is becoming your true name.

Aidan Hart, icon painter, interviewed on Radio New Zealand.
