Chills, then fever

We met tonight in home group to talk about the holiness of God. It was... daunting. We heard a lot from the writings of A.W Tozer.

"God’s holiness is not simply the best we know infinitely bettered. We know nothing like the divine holiness. It stands apart, unique, unapproachable, incomprehensible and unattainable… Holy is the way God is. To be holy He does not conform to a standard. He is that standard.”
–A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy. (San Francisco: Harper Collins, 1961), pp. 104-105.
We were told to take pictures of what we see of God and hang them on the walls of our mind and our hearts. 
I have some pictures, but from tonight, I have a sound.
The sound of all of us reading the Lord's Prayer (or the Model Prayer if you will) in unison.
There's something about hearing each other.
Kind of like, "Holy, Holy, Holy..." must be in heaven.
It gave me chills. And a burning desire to lead more people into that close a communion. To be there in the midst when it happens.
Thanks to all of you who gathered tonight. And thanks be to God.
