Jesus took the initiative to leave his rightful place with God, became one of us, lived right in the middle of real life, confronted those who talked about God only when it benefited them, reached out to include those whom proper people ostracized and died that we might receive the salvation we need but can never get on our own. And yet, I know I have coated Jesus with so many layers of my own beliefs, comfort zones and sin that sometimes he gets lost in the shuffle of my daily life. But even when he does because of what I’ve done, he never gives up on me. Or on you. Or on anybody. And that’s why the gospel is called Good News!
