Redemption Is Real!
The proof of any pudding is in the eating. Likewise, the proof of the truth of God’s word about redemption is in the lives of those who have believed His word and received by faith what He has offered, proving it’s veracity in their daily lives.
These people have seen family members kept from the ravages of sins that have overtaken their peers, or have seen them brought back from entanglement in them, through faith in God’s promises to them as the redeemed.
Believing that their redeemer lives and has not forgotten them, they have experienced peace of mind, and joy of heart in circumstances that those who do not depend on God’s redemption are destroyed or embittered by.
They have believed for, and seen, victory when all around had given way to despair.
They have recognised that their calling is not limited to this life, but that they are being prepared for a higher calling.
They have not counted their lives their own, but have petitioned God to know His purpose for their lives.
They have known rest, and the calming influence of an unshakeable faith in times of turmoil and uncertainty.
They have not doubted God’s tremendous love and care for them, though mistreated or abandoned by people or society.
They have looked to Him for miraculous healing from illness, deliverance from danger, or rescue from threat of financial destitution.
They have not flinched from His calling or lost sight of His purpose when under attack by the enemy whose desire is to intimidate and distract them.
They experience miraculous protection in situations in which many around them are facing destruction.
