The other requires an INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP, involving trust, confidence, deepest dependence.
One may put God aside until His services are required.
The other assumes a KNOWLEDGE and care born only from logging time together.
One focuses on certain desirable qualities and traits, such as patience, joy, strength.
The other focuses ON A WHOLE PERSON, WHO IS THE EXCLUSIVE SOURCE AND LIVING EMBODIMENT OF THESE QUALITIES, AND WHO HAPPENS TO BE MY LIFE (Colossians 3:3-4; Galatians 2:20).
