Yaconelli: unfinished

Friday, August 15, 2014
    Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
    —1 Peter 2:2-3 (NIV)
    Jesus understood unfinishedness very well, which is why he was comfortable leaving eleven unfinished disciples. When he died, the disciples were confused, depressed, afraid, and doubtful. They faced a lifetime of finishing, just like you and me. Messy spirituality not only reminds us we will always be a work in progress; it also reminds us that the unfinished life is a lot more spiritual than we imagined.
    ... Mike Yaconelli (1942-2003), Messy Spirituality [2002], Zondervan, 2007, p. 30 (see the book)
    See also 1 Pet. 2:2-3; Matt. 16:15-23; 28:17; Mark 8:29-33; John 20:25; Rom. 8:5-8; 1 Cor. 2:14-15; 3:1-2; 14:20; Eph. 4:11-15; Col. 1:28; 3:2; Heb. 5:12-14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, increase my growth in You.
