A New Thing : Meaning of Redemption

The feeling of "new" helps us forget the old, it's an opportunity for a second chance. Isaiah 43:18-21 talks about the meaning of Godly redemption. this concept of redeeming or purchasing us back from our sins.
  1. Clean Slate - The concept of Godly forgetfulness. It's not that God has forgotten what the we've done in the past, but rather He has chosen to let us start over. What regrets do you bear? God's promise is that His view of you now will not be tainted by you past
  2. Clear Vision - This is a promise that HE will give a Godly anchored perspective. What may seem to you as a disaster now, God will use as a way of deliverance
  3. Confident Testimony - In the moment of you spiritual dryness the works God does in your life will server as a living testimony for non-believers. Will you allow God to empower you life?
  4. Committed Calling - The principle of God give purpose. Do you have a purpose? In order for God to work in your life, you must leave whatever is holding you back. Whether it is regrets, our comforts, or any other dependencies, they serve as a metaphoric cage preventing you for progressing forward.
