I want you to know that there is a direct relationship between strange things … and holy That’s actually what holy is: something different, something not of this world. And today I want to rework this idea of holiness that has unfortunately been turned into something that even people in the church don’t find all that desirable. To be holy is to be different. It is to be not of this world. It is to be strange. Peter said we are strangers in this world. And if we take holiness seriously, I assure you, we will see strange things happening in our lives. Because strange things don’t just happen in Bible times or in the movies; strange things happen in people who live strange, different lives, as though possessed by a supernatural force.
