An Act of Redemption

Me: She is so beautiful and wonderfully made.

Prodigal: Yes, I am glad I have had this time with her.

Vocabulary of Faith by Hampton Adams

God accomplished in Jesus Christ an act of redemption for all time and eternity. Man’s separation from God is due to man’s pretension that he is sovereign. All evil results from this conceit. Because of the separation man sooner or later comes to know that his life is without power and without meaning. And because of the separation he has deprived himself of the source of power and meaning. He is unable to bore through these affectations to the wellsprings of his own life. It is at the depth where deep calls out to deep, that he can know God.

Lord we need you to give us the strength to handle those people and situations that challenge us to sin with our words. We need to to show us how the enemy would like to distract us with those people and situations. Lord we need you to remind us of who we are and not what these people say we are.

The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

MATTHEW 6 : 22
