When I blow it, there are some choice words that I expect to hear.
- You are a failure.
- Why can’t you get it right?
- You always let me down.
- You are a disappointment.
Those are law words. Thankfully, in the gospel, there are other choice words spoken by Jesus:
“It is finished and you are Mine!”
Those are not law words, but grace words—choice words that I pray I, my wife, my children, and you will have ears to hear today, tomorrow and every day as we live all of life in view of the cross.
