"Here’s the truth. Jesus is the winner. That’s the truth. We’re not victorious. He is. We’re not righteous. He is. We don’t redeem ourselves from slavery to sin. He does."

"None of us can look at Jesus and say, ‘You don’t understand. Jesus, you don’t understand what it is to grow up, to be a teenager, to have your family sort of turn their back on you and your friends betray you. You don’t know what it’s like to work a dead-end job. You don’t know what’s it like to be homeless and you don’t know what it’s like to be poor. And you don’t know what it’s like to be mocked or lied about or beaten or abused or harmed or suffer or die.’ Jesus would say, ‘Actually, I do.’"

"On the cross, Jesus hid his victory in defeat, hid his glory in shame, and hid our life in his death."

"Jesus is devastated. It’s okay to be devastated. Jesus is sad. It’s okay to be sad. Jesus is concerned. It’s okay to be concerned. Jesus is experiencing anxiety. Not all anxiety is sin. The question is what do you do in those moments. You may sin. Or like Jesus, my hope and great longing would be that you would talk to God honestly. Respectfully, but honestly. “God this is dark. I am devastated. This is incredibly hard.” What you don’t need to do on the days when your spouse says, “I’m leaving.” Your doctor says, “It’s cancer.” The nurse says, “You’ve miscarried.” Your sibling calls and says, “Dad died and he didn’t know Jesus.” What you don’t need to do on those days is pretend. Pretend that life is easy. That life is good. It’s okay to say that life is complicated and sometimes painful."
