For it is by grace you have been saved, and this is not of yourself, it is a work of God.
Good people don’t get to heaven.
Forgiven people get to heaven.
How disarming is it when someone confesses their humanity to you. It takes away the pretense. They are being honest about the truth that they are just the same as you. Faulty, messed up, imperfect.
How great is it to have friends who know your faults. Have seen you at your worst, and yet still love and value you. See something in you.
