Seen on a bumper sticker this afternoon…I presume it’s a reference to a movie…one that I cannot endorse! It also gave me a blog topic…Deliverance!
Yesterday I taught my fourth grade Sunday School Class the difference between redemption and deliverance, in the biblical Exodus account. Redemption is the repurchase of something sold…while deliverance goes further. It is the rescue and return of one to their rightful owner. God delivered the Israelites to Himself after rescuing them from the Egyptians.
I see a present day political correlation in the concept of deliverance…
America is presently submitting to a master…not the One in whose name it was founded! No longer free people…we have slowly become slaves dependent on government, financially insolvent, and morally bankrupt. Our leaders have taken our freedom and sold it to another.
This once great nation is in need of rescue and return to its founding principles. America needs deliverance!
“The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” (Psalm 18:2/ESV)
The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it!
