The Journey of Salvation

Bill Arnold posts this.

In Adventures in Missing the Point, Brian McLaren tells us a parable about a race. The following is a short excerpt:
The runners took a step or two or three across the starting line, and then abruptly stopped. One man fell to his knees, crying, "I have crossed the starting line! This is the happiest day of my life!" He repeated this again and again, and even began singing a song about how happy this day was for him. (26)
This little parable contrasts those who look at salvation as a one time event with those who look at it as a lifelong journey. The beginning is not the end.
