day no. 12,807: not by power or piety‏

Acts 3:12

And when Peter saw it he addressed the people: “Men of Israel, why do
you wonder at this, or why do you stare at us, as though by our own
power or piety we have made him walk?

Not by power or piety are men saved.

Not in following godly men or becoming ourselves godly do we find
favor in His sight.

It is through,to, for and from Christ alone.

Why are you staring merely at men?

We often become either obsessed with all that men can muster or with
the man staring back at us in the mirror.

Both are too weak to bear the weight which we attempt to place upon them.
That house will not hold up.

Hebrews 3:3-4

3 For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses—as much
more glory as the builder of a house has more honor than the house
itself. 4 (For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all
things is God.)
