The Christian Life

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.

Yeah! I knew I wasn't the only Luther fan out there. Great quote.

In this life we won't "make it". Thanks for the great reminder - and thanks, Luther!
