Thursday, May 6th - Becoming More Trusting
Week Three, Day Four
Redemption Comes from the Savior
Read Ruth 4:9-12.
Have you accepted this gift of redemption, or are you still trying to prove to Jesus you’re worth it? Are you waiting to accept redemption until you deserve it? Your past or future actions have no bearing on Jesus’ willingness to redeem you from your sins and bring you into His family. Nothing you will do or have done will disqualify you from receiving this gift.
Ruth couldn’t save herself; she placed her trust in her redeemer. You can’t save yourself; put your trust in The Redeemer.
Prayer for Today: Jesus, I realize I’m not good enough, successful enough, or worthy to receive your redemption. I bring nothing and you give everything. I accept your gift.
