To be conformed to the image of his Son is not only to think God’s thoughts after him but to desire what God desires. That requires the recalibration of our heart-habits and the recapturing of our imagination, which happens when God’s Word becomes the orienting center of our social imaginary, shaping our very perception of things before we even think about them.

James K. A. Smith, You Are What You Love: The Spiritual Power of Habit (Brazos, 2016), 85.
