Every Wednesday evening we drive to church to particpate in the mid-week service. And every Wednesday we drive past a little mall where, in the parking lot, a big group of car enthusiasts meet (at least they meet in spring, summer and fall). They all park their classic cars or their sports cars in big rows; they pop the hoods and then stand around talking, admiring one another’s vehicles. Every week I have the urge to drive into the parking lot, park my minivan among them, pop the hood and just stand there, looking proud.

The glory of the gospel is that when the church is absolutely different from the world she invariably attracts it.—Martyn Lloyd-Jones
