Have you ever considered the fact that you are in need of redemption? You are. So am I.
Some of you are well aware of the fact that you need redemption, but you think you aren’t deserving of it. You aren’t. Neither am I.
But we want redemption… no, we need redemption don’t we? Look around you… everything is messed up… broken. All you need to do is watch the first two minutes of the news to know that our world is falling apart. People kill each other, people kill themselves, people are on drugs, and lonely, depressed, hungry, and angry. Our world needs redemption.
We talk about people behind their backs, we lie, we cheat, we steal. We hate, we judge, we devalue. Yes, we need redemption. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus (Romans 3:23-24).
The good news is this: there is redemption. There’s redemption and it’s free. There’s redemption and it’s for everyone. There’s redemption and it’s found in Jesus Christ.
