Redemption of Faith!
“Have mercy upon me, O God, according to your loving-kindness: according to unto the multitude of your tender mercies blot out my transgressions.” Psalms 51:1
When Jesus was on earth, He referred to God more as Father than any other term. He repeated it so often that it will make mischief to deny the same. His apostles repeated the same in all their letters. Peter says we were born of the word (1 Peter 1:23). James says He is the Father of lights, and we are a kind of first fruit of his creatures (James 1:17,18).
Hebrews’ writer affirms he brought many sons unto the glory and that we are His brethren (Hebrews 2:10,11). John exclaims Beloved, now are we the children of God (1 John 3:1,2). Upon His resurrection, Jesus says to Mary, ‘go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God (John 20.17). So, this is a fact that cannot be denied about us.
Psalm 106:45 says, “God remembered His covenant with them, and relented by the abundance of His loving devotion.”
Jesus knew the Father only offers forgiveness and reconciliation. He will not forsake; instead, he heals, restores, and sets apart. He finds the purest gold in miry clay and turns sinners into saints. I am a living testimony of this kind of love. God restored without the recount of the past. He does not delight in judgment.
God is always in the business of reconciling humankind to Himself or restore fellowship to any believer that has gone astray. He brings redemption of faith through Jesus Christ to those who were lost. Therefore, hold on to your hope and trust in him. He will save you from all kinds of troubles in Jesus’ name. James 1:17 says, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
1. Father, I thank you for the gift of forgiveness and restoration I have in you.
2. Lord Jesus, renew and restore me into your perfect plan.
