Lawrence: every aspect of life

Monday, August 12, 2019
    May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    —1 Thessalonians 5:23 (NIV)
    The task of the people of God is to proclaim the kingdom of God, which is a universal kingdom extending to every aspect of human life. In a secular society, religion cannot remain a department of life. It must be the expression of a faith that extends over the whole of life, or it will be nothing.
    ... John Lawrence (1873-1968), “The Church’s Mission to the World: On the Cultural Frontier (Theme Address),” included in Anglican Congress 1963: Report of Proceedings, Eugene Rathbone Fairweather, ed., Editorial Committee, Anglican Congress, 1963, p. 90 (see the book)
    See also 1 Thess. 5:23; Phil. 1:4-6; 2:14-16; Eph. 5:25-27; Col. 1:22; Jude 1:24
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, ignore my resistance and leave no part of my life untouched.
