Completely Overflowing

November 17, 2020

“Most of our conflicts and difficulties come from trying to deal with the spiritual and practical aspects of our life separately instead of realizing them as parts of one whole.”

Evelyn Underhill is doing surgery with that sentence…soul surgery.

She continues, “If our practical life is centered on our own interests, we need not expect that our spiritual life will be a contrast to all this.”

If that’s not enough, she exposes a painful truth we’d rather ignore: “The soul’s house is built without soundproof partitions.”

 St. Paul reminds us of the source of our remedy: Our own completeness is now found in Christ. We are completely filled as Christ’s fullness overflows within us. (Colossians 2:10)

Serious Stuff: Are you wanting to get from here to there, from disintegration to Shalom?

What steps are we hesitating to take?

Let today be the day you begin.

As in, now.
