Godly Grit 42 - Storehouse 5 - Redemption
We pursue a solution where we see a need; we become complacent where we do not see a need. We all know of multiple areas of our lives that require change. We live with the belief that a little effort here and there will accomplish all the needed change. Redemption is a meaningless concept if we do not see a need for redemption. If we do not see the need we will abandon contentment and cling to complacency.
Redemption is the action of saving or being saved from sin, error, or evil. It is the regaining or gaining possession of something in exchange for payment or clearing a debt.Through redemption, God offers us a life of contentment, but we most often choose the life of familiar complacency. We are aware that there is a reality far superior to the one we are experiencing, but we are comfortable enough to refuse to leave our comfortable areas. As recorded in Romans 8:22 (TPT), “To this day we are aware of the universal agony and groaning of creation, as if it were in the contractions of labor for childbirth.” The redemption problem is that we desperately need it but don’t realize how much we need it. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/richard-hindmarsh0/support
