redeemed and gathered in

Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
whom he has redeemed from trouble
and gathered in from the lands,
from the east and from the west,
from the north and from the south.
Psalm 107:2-3

The biggest reason for praising the Lord is for His saving love displayed to us in Jesus! We know His loving grace extends to us forever in the redemption that is ours in Christ. He gives us better lives. He saves us from what was destroying us. He buys us back from futility, frustration, domination and the slavery of sin.

And in that redemption that Jesus brought, He has now also adopted us as children into God the Father's home. We have been gathered in securely. We are sure of that love as we know Him in family relationship. God brings us close. He gathers us in.

And now God has made us one in His family. There are people from all directions and nations whom He has gathered in... men and women from every tribe and ethnicity of the earth. God's redeeming work is global and His praise knows no language or ethnic barriers. Praise Him! Praise Him all you, His redeemed who are saved and gathered into His love! Praise Him!
