The Initiating Love of God

Owen asked, “Why do they call Good Friday, ‘Good Friday’ if that’s when they killed Jesus?” That’s a great question. That’s not a 5-year-old question. He’s a genius! Let me tell you my favorite thing about Good Friday. My favorite thing about Good Friday is that God publicly, efficiently, and for all time outed me. He just completely outed me, and now that outing has set me free.

Here’s what I mean by that. God publicly acknowledges, “Mark Jackson is going to need a Savior. He’s going to fall short. He’s going to be far from perfect. He’s going to need me.” How does that happen? Because of Good Friday. Jesus set me free from all of that.  In spite of everything, He Loves me SO much!
