Creator and Maker, Redeemer of Man

Featuring Dennis Jernigan Posted on January 29, 2010

"...Creator and Maker, Redeemer of Man..."

God is Creator of all that is. He is our Maker - the Potter who desires to fashion us into the image of Christ. He is Redeemer...and I have needed a lot of redemption! There was a time in my life when I felt I messed things up to the point I no longer wanted to live...and actually took steps to end my own life. Since I failed at that attempt (gladly so!) I went headlong into a year of willful sin. It took the love of God as demonstrated to me by a friend to knock some sense into me. Even though I was allowing myself to receive a measure of God's love I still could see no way for God to redeem all I had done. Yet here I stand 27 years later and God is using the story of my greatest failure to bring glory and honor to His Son and to see countless people receive hope and freedom...and redemption.

Take time to think on all God has redeemed you from. In what other areas of your life would you like to see God's redemption?
Their Redeemer is strong,
the LORD of hosts is His name;
He will vigorously plead their case
So that He may bring rest to the earth,
But turmoil to the inhabitants of Babylon.

Jeremiah 50:34 NASB
