Today is Good Friday. It is good for me and you because all the bad we have done was accounted for on a Friday a couple of thousand years ago.
The thing about Good Friday is that it reminds me that I am a failure. That I messed up. That I mess up. That I will probably mess up again.
But as I reflect on Jesus. Think about him more. Learn more about his life. Learn more about how he believes I can become like him…I get excited.
So I realize I am a failure and I learn that I don’t have to be one all the time.
In God’s grace he allows those two things to overlap. He allows me to continue living. He allows me to try again.
God allows me to progress, and regress, through life.
It is beautiful and it is good. Today is going to again be a Good Friday.
