Thought of the Day

Evangelicals and others can get excited over their "Yes, Lord" and "This is the air I breathe." It's a free country. But personally, having been through much of that sort of thing, I don't think it was until I was singing "Chief of Sinners Though I Be" and unexpectedly found tears rolling down my cheeks, or until I found myself walking back from Communion suddenly struck by the knowledge that, no matter how I felt, the eight or so sins that had been deeply bothering me were wiped clean away, that I experienced anything like true emotion in worship.
