The Upside of Messy

“We are able to see the ‘upside of messy’ only because Jesus went into the mess first in order to heal it. He left heaven for a womb, a stable, a wilderness, and a cross, so that the world would be saved through Him. We are able to love and pursue the healing of messy people because Jesus did it first—befriending tax collectors, sinners, pimps and prostitutes, and then making many of them his apostles!” ~ (Scott Sauls).

[From Church Planter, by Darrin Patrick]
