BAD, BADDER, BADDEST

Sometimes when people of faith get together and tell the story of their journey, you will hear what evolves into almost a competition of how bad they were before finding God’s love. One will tell their story, and another almost tries to top the “before” part of the first person.



I remember once, at a baptism, one man told of his struggles, spending nearly a full 15 minutes on how bad he was, and in a quick “P.S.”… “and then God saved me”. It was as though the evil and anguish of the man’s life was more profound than God’s redemptive work in his life.



Other times, you hear people tell of some struggles in their life, struggles that have overwhelmed them. They seem to shake a fist in the air and cry out “that’s not fair!”. Hmmm. Fair. If we each got was was fair and due us…. Well, think about that one. Seriously.



And speaking of fair… did Jesus get what was fair and due Him? Did His punishment at Calvary befit the crime that He was held for? Of course not. He paid dearly, and He paid for all of mankind in one agonizing act of truest love.



So, as we face our challenges, and tell of the crises in our lives, let us ever be mindful that it is God, at work in us, that is the real good news. God - at work in us when He knew Him not, God at work today - and ready for all our tomorrows. That is the miracle in motion.
