a work in progress

This morning's Bible reading contained these words:

"Yet, O Lord, you are our Father.

We are the clay, you are the potter,

we are all the work of your hand."

Isaiah 64:8

This was followed by these words from the July 31st reading from Oswald Chambers' My Utmost for His Highest:

"Many of us are all right in the main, but there are some domains in which we are slovenly. It is not a question of sin, but of the remnants of the carnal life which are apt to make us slovenly. Slovenliness is an insult to the Holy Ghost. There should be nothing slovenly, whether it be in the way we eat and drink, or in the way we worship God."

He goes on to speak about how God will bring these particular points of slovenliness back to our attention, because He is 'producing the finished product' in us.

"Have thine own way, Lord,

have thine own way,

thou art the potter,

I am the clay..."
