Because Jesus was strong for you, you're free to be weak.
Because Jesus won for you, you're free to lose.
--quoted by various bloggers including Tullian Tchividjian
The Gospel is that we are FAR worse than we can ever imagine and that God's grace in Jesus is far greater than we can ever comprehend! God's grace in Jesus frees us to be weak and to lose for the sake of the Gospel! That's the Gospel we all need to preach to our own hearts every day as it frees us from a performance based mentality in our relationship with God and others!
