Christ’s Redemption has freed us from guilt, “justified freely by His grace through the redemption in Christ Jesus.” Redemption declares we are worthy of the gifts, rewards, and benefits of being Holy. I felt the Lord say to me as I was struggling against sin one day, “Every time you say no to your flesh, you are saying to me, ‘I love you more.’” This motivated me to declare my love to Him through my choice to obey Him in even the smallest places. When we genuinely love Him, it will propel us to follow Him. The good news is that Jesus works in us to bring us to this place. This is what He did with Peter when he had failed Jesus. Of course, Peter had denied the Lord. Jesus asks Peter if he loves Him and will give his life for Him. Peter is destroyed and riddled with guilt in these moments. He has been uncovered and now knows his weakness and vulnerability. He answers that he fondly feels for Jesus but knows he couldn’t give his life for Him. This had been manifested just a few hours earlier. Not only does Peter know this, but everyone else does as well. Jesus then makes a startling statement in John 21:18-19. He promises Peter that before the process is done, He will be willing and able to give His life for Jesus without reservation. It’s easy, my friends, to look at Judas with disgust because of his betrayal. Have you ever been betrayed? Have you ever betrayed someone? It frustrates us when we see the warrior Peter put to the test 3 times, then cave to fear and deny that he has any knowledge of Jesus. Have you ever been denied? Have you ever denied someone? Even as I type this, I feel the aching in my beloved Lord’s heart for you to know of His redemptive power! He can go into your timeline and bring Redemption! Declaration: Heavenly Father, I thank You for sending Redemption unto Your people: You have commanded Your covenant forever. Father, I thank You that in Redemption You bring eternal life, forgiveness of my sins, righteousness, freedom from the law’s curse, freedom from accusation, and adoption into Your family. I am Yours, and You are mine! From My Book: Redeeming Your Timeline
