"Let the Redeemed Say So"
Exerpt from Walking with the Savior - by Max Lucado
"You have begun to live the new life,
in which you are made new and are
becoming like the One who made you."
"I wonder if Jesus doesn't muster up a slight smile as he sees his lost sheep come straggling into the fold-- the beaten, broken, dirty sheep who stands at the door looking up at the Shepherd asking, "Can I come in? I don't deserve it, but is there room in your kingdom for one more?" The Shepherd looks down at the sheep and says, "Come in, this is your home."
Salvation is the process that's done, that's secure, that no one can take away from you. Sanctification is the lifelong process of being changed from one degree of glory to the next, growing in Christ, putting away the old, taking on the new.
The Psalmist David would tell us that those who have been redeemed will say so! If we're not saying so, perhaps it's because we've forgotten what it is like to be redeemed. Let the redeemed of the earth say so!"
Boy, Max Lucado has a gift with words! He is masterful in explaining the richness of Christ waiting and welcoming us into His home. You may be thinking, "I am not ready to talk to Jesus until I clean up my life." Because of Jesus' unconditional, immeasurable love- He accepts you as you are and wants you to trust in Him. It's time to find your way back home!
