Re… cession. We’re all hearing it. Perhaps the worst in my lifetime, and likely yours. Global economic loss. Unemployment soaring. Uncertainty with tsunami force.

Governments pressing into when to re… start economic activity.

Daily lives, now re… coiling.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us… (Ephesians 2:4)

God. In an act of transcendent love, took us, while we were lifeless; breathless; hopeless; lost; bankrupt; destitute; alienated; worthless…

And He re… deemed us. This perfect God. Holy. Righteous. Pure, sent His precious son to buy us back. He declared victory over re… gret.

Re… deemed.

So that we could be re… newed. That we might be re… lieved of the judgment of sin.

Re… minded of the liberty we experience in Jesus.

Unleashed in re… vival.

Re… storing the joy of His salvation.

Re… placing our identity in the righteousness of Christ.

There is a Re… Deemer. Jesus. God’s only son.

He collects the ashes of our dreams, and aspirations, and plans, and He re… invests them in a treasure that will not rot or rust or decay or re… cede.


There is no white flag of re… treat in our King.

He Reigns. Make no mistake. We have a Redeemer. He has purchased us with His own blood. He will not fail us. He will not abandon us. He will not flee. He is not far away…

When the world talks recession. Christ followers talk redemption. Renewal. Restoration. And yes, Revival.

What a Savior. No scheme of man. No power of hell. Rescued. Redeemed. That we may remain with Him forever.
