Recovering Redemption. What does it mean?
Recovering: Getting back, restoring.
Redemption: God’s plan of salvation, the gospel.
Because we have a tendency to drift from the gospel, we must be reoriented back to the gospel. We must recover a right understanding and application of the gospel. We must see that the gospel is the fuel for salvation and sanctification and the panacea to fix all things.
The heart of the problem is the problem of the heart.
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? Jeremiah 17:9
I can’t. God can.
I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5
God meets you where you are.
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
