- every thought
- every word
- every act
- every hurt
Only His love can redeem these things. A jury of my peers can offer solice, support, empathy, contempt, love – but it’s not redeeming love, it can’t be, for even our love must be redeemed by His love – it is imperfect, it is conditional, it comes and goes, is offered and withheld, it’s whimsical – it will not last, it cannot last, it will always hurt – His love will never harm me, never, ever. He loves me. I have been redeemed.
Jesus, my kinsman redeemer – my goel.
