Throughout Scripture, the Lord communicates the concept of redemption–being saved from something and being saved to something better. This means that He not only wants to declare us not guilty from our sin, He also provides that we are given a hope and a future, adopted as His own. Like Ruth and Naomi, who dealt with great loss, the Lord provides redemption that brings great joy. When we trust and live for Jesus Christ, He brings us into fullness. Will we continue to drift back into the darkness of our old life, or live in the light of His great work?
