Its a good Friday for bad people
I know no one likes to think of themselves as "bad people" - we all think we're good people, but it's really all based on the measuring stick we use. Compare ourselves to other humans, we run down the checklist (I don't lie..much, I don't steal things, I don't cheat on my spouse, I give to charity, I helped that lady with the flat tire that time..that was nice of me, etc..), we fare pretty well. But when we compare ourselves to a Holy God that is without flaw, then we see that we're not as "good" as we think. (I lied to my kids about the Easter bunny, I stole some pencils from work, etc..). Anyway, it doesn't matter how bad we are because Jesus died for ALL of our sins and those who accept His sacrifice on their behalf will be made righteous in the site of God. That's what Good Friday is all about. That's what I am thankful for today.
