Incomplete

You knew this was coming.

Over the last couple of days, I have uploaded video versions of the Backstreet Boys' "Incomplete" to several of my blogs. One was a Top of the Pops appearance, one was a Today Show appearance, and one was a video parody by some guys hanging around a pool.

Well, I'm not going to upload a Backstreet Boys video to THIS blog.

And, as it turns out, I won't be citing Bible references that include the word "incomplete." At least in the NIV, there aren't any.

But the word "complete," in some shape or form, occurs in the NIV over 100 times. Here are a few examples:

Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.

To Sarah he said, "I am giving your brother a thousand shekels of silver. This is to cover the offense against you before all who are with you; you are completely vindicated."

Now the LORD had said to Moses, "I will bring one more plague on Pharaoh and on Egypt. After that, he will let you go from here, and when he does, he will drive you out completely.

Destroy completely all the places on the high mountains and on the hills and under every spreading tree where the nations you are dispossessing worship their gods.

But Saul and the army spared Agag and the best of the sheep and cattle, the fat calves and lambs—everything that was good. These they were unwilling to destroy completely, but everything that was despised and weak they totally destroyed.

Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, "I am thirsty."

Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.
