Redemption is a wonderful thing; the cornerstone of Christianity in many ways. It is also both a gracious gift of Jesus and a lifelong pursuit of holding that gift in calibration with our own feelings. It’s easy to know you’ve been redeemed; it can be a lot more difficult to feel that way. To see it come to bear in our lives, to harvest those fruits of the spirit we’ve heard so much about. Especially when we seem to see it happening in other’s lives and not in our own – how can we counterbalance that frustration?
Just remember: the journey toward redemption is filled with goals that are extremely personal for you and that may look different from anyone else’s. What are your goals? What do you want over these next four days?
