"The story for every Christian is, “I failed. He’s faithful.” Whenever we tell the story of God’s involvement and investment in our life, the plot line has to be: “I failed. Jesus didn’t.”...You’re not the hero of your life. I’m not the hero of my life. We’re the villains. Jesus is the hero...The reality is that we’re all failures and have horrible and bad things in our past. The good news is that—while we can and should face justice and the consequences of our actions in this life—we’re not too far out of the reach of God’s great and saving grace. No one is."
