Increasingly I believe that after we are saved we have only one calling, and that is to show forth the existence and the character of God. Since God is love and God is holy, it is our calling to ... be and act in such a way as to show forth His love and His holiness simultaneously.... Of course on one's own strength it is only possible to show forth either love or holiness. But to show forth the holiness and love of God simultaneously requires much more. It requires the moment by moment work of the Holy Spirit in a very practical way.
