The B team

30 Jan
Here they come…
Here come the B team
the failures
the not-good enoughs.
The sinners
the losers
the ungodly
and the hopeless.
But they’re coming singing.
A rag-tag army with weapons of love
and shouting for joy.
They’re coming after Jesus, who brought them here.
Him and only him.
And how they praise and follow and love him for giving them this whole new start, this victory, this hope, this everlasting new life!
This totally unearnt position of utmost honour.
Could there be a more thankful people in all the world than these?
Here come the failures – and they’re called the Children of God.
