The unexpected comments on yesterday's post from Matt Chandler reminded me of these "fightin' words" from world-renowned boxer Mike Tyson:
"All praise is to Allah, I'll fight any man, any animal; if Jesus were here I'd fight him too."
You'll have your chance, Mike. But I wouldn't go there if I were you.
On this day in which we remember Jesus bearing the judgment we deserved for our sin, how grateful I am that at the cost of His own life, Jesus turned a rebellious enemy like me into a friend.
I was once just as blind and foolish as Mike Tyson, and it's only by the grace of God that I have come to see glory and beauty in the face of Jesus Christ. Thank You, Lord, for this indescribable gift!
