I have been growing to love the church a lot lately.
The past few months I’ve just watched as people have loved one another, have loved me, have loved God. I’ve been watching as their lives are changed by the Spirit and the gospel, and have been genuinely awed by it. I feel as though I am watching something sacred happening–heck, I am watching something sacred happening–and it’s almost embarrassing, because how do I get the privilege to see this? Ah, Lord, You give us not only Yourself, but one another, grace upon grace, and my cup overflows with it.
