Sweet Redeemer

may 17“Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you (lavishly) with lovingkindness and tender mercy…” Psalm 103:4 (AMP)

 

Are you someone who was NOT raised by Christian parents in a Christian home standing on biblical standards and principles? Rules were absent and boundaries nonexistent. The house motto was “live and let live.” Or where you raised totally different? At the opposite end of the spectrum along the short and narrow. Only to take a path contrary to your Christian upbringing. Whichever the case, your choices resulted in what some would label as having a “checkered past.” However, one day all that changed when you met Jesus. The day you received Jesus as your personal Savior your life was instantly changed. The old you passed away and the new you emerged (2 Cor. 5:17).  What was once old was made new by the love and blood of Jesus.

 

Are there people in your life, because of your past, that have discounted or disqualified you? Even after many years of living for Jesus. Shake it off! Do not fret! Don’t let another day pass caring what others may think. God does our qualifying. God qualifies the disqualified and recognizes the discounted.

In Matthew 1:1-16 Jesus’ lineage lists four women, but they are not Sarah, Rebekah, Leah or Rachel. The women the world would consider up standing citizens. The women on Jesus’ family tree is Tamar the prostitute. However, her lineage produced the tribe of Judah by which the Messiah came. Rahab a Gentile and Jericho’s harlot who was instrumental in helping the Israelites defeat Jericho. Ruth, a Moabite viewed as unclean, but would become the great grandmother of King David. And Bathsheba the adulteress, who gave birth to King Solomon by whose lineage Jesus derived.

God purposefully chose women who the world would discount or disqualify because His grace is greater than all our sins. He is the God of the second, third, fourth and one thousandth chances. Even when by our own actions we wreak havoc into our lives. God lavishes upon us His gracious forgiveness, love and mercy. Supernaturally intervening in our lives no matter what the natural may look like and turns our bondage into blessings.

“Thank You Father, we have nothing to prove because through You our qualifications have been met. You have redeemed us from the mire and muck of the pit.”

For His Glory
