Underhill: life indivisible

Monday, December 11, 2023
    For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority.
    —Colossians 2:9-10 (NIV)
    Indeed, if God is All and His Word to us is All, that must mean that He is the reality and controlling factor of every situation, religious or secular; and that it is only for His glory and creative purpose that it exists. Therefore our favourite distinction between the spiritual life and the practical life is false. We cannot divide them. One affects the other all the time.
    ... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), The Spiritual Life, London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1937, reprinted, Morehouse Publishing, 1985, p. 35 (see the book)
    See also Col. 2:9-12; Ps. 51:10; Eze. 36:26; Rom. 12:2; 13:14; 1 Cor. 6:9-11; 2 Cor. 5:17; Eph. 4:22-24; Col. 1:21-23; 3:7-10; 1 Thess. 4:3-6; 2 Tim. 2:19; Heb. 2:11; 2 Pet. 1:2-4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your word integrates my life.
