Today the Transaction was Made

So how is the Jason Kidd trade looking now? Again, I LOVE Jason Kidd -- from 5 to 10 years ago. Why don't the Mavs see if John Stockton wants to come play? They could probably give away several #1s for him.

It's looking like the Mavs need to move into rebuilding mode.

Well, one Texas team is out (Baylor) and one continues (A&M). Texas should be joining A&M in the winners' bracket today.

Today is Good Friday. I know, we traditionally haven't observed such days. We like being out of school on it, though. But unlike Christmas (we really don't know when Jesus was born), we do know that Jesus was crucified the day before Passover -- which is tomorrow. So roughly 1,978 years ago today, the most unfair -- but greatest -- transaction in history took place. Jesus died on the cross to take away the sins of the world. The wrath of God was poured out on Him -- so that I never have to incur it myself.

That makes THIS Friday pretty good, wouldn't you say?

"Good" seems just a little inadequate (see Rick Ross blog on word "awesome"). Kind of like the word gospel meaning good news. It's more than good it's: great, fantastic, amazing, too good to be true, awesome (sorry).

And Good Friday is more than just good. It's the day when Jesus, as our High Priest, entered into God's throne room and presented His blood for our atonement.

I try to focus on something you said this Sunday morning. The risen savior alsolutely must make a difference in how we live. And the difference ought to be on the order of new creation.
