Work In Progress

The following passage was part of Sunday's sermon. Read Luther's quote and think about the words, process the thoughts; I have been doing just that for the last few days, and am now passing it on to you. I can do no other, I'm a work in progress! This needs to be embroidered on something that I see every day.

“This life therefore is not righteousness, but growth in righteousness, not health, but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it, the process is not yet finished, but it is going on, this is not the end, but it is the road. All does not yet gleam in glory, but all is being purified.” 
-Martin Luther
Life is Good!
