– Our Need for Redemption –
Our God is not a faraway God, a character in a fairy tale. He sees our needs and He meets them. From clothing the lilies to healing the sick, He is not detached from our physical needs.
As much as He delights in meeting each need of our flesh, He is far more generous in meeting the needs of our spirit.
He draws near in the midst of our great need.
He draws near with the whispered truth of His love.
He draws near with the hope-filled promise of our redemption.
When God draws near, He meets our greatest need: redemption.
