But then it was time to leave. The chapel wasn't a place to live.
As I walked out into the busy Paris street, I thought, "Christianity isn't stained glass faith; it's following Christ in holiness and love."
Acts 2:1-6 reminds us of the power that was unleashed when God's people experienced the Holy Spirit in their hearts for the first time.
It is this transforming power that the church needs today.
I need it. Without God's power, "holiness" is simply human effort — and that's not true holiness at all.
I've spent most of this month focusing on holiness. I'll likely go on for the rest of this year to focus on this attribute of God and His desire to see it manifested in my life.
I don't know if I'll write about it all year. But I'll ask God to help me live it out.
Stained glass is beautiful. But a life that reflects Christ? That's amazing.
