I've Been Rescued

I want the following quote/truth to be embedded in my thought process, or my memory bank, or my instinct, so as to respond to every experience, person, situation, story in light of this reality.

“If you read the Scriptures carefully, you will never get the idea that the work of Christ is for well adjusted people who just need a little redemptive boost. It never presents any human condition or dilemma as outside the scope of the gospel. Redemption is nothing less than the rescue of helpless people facing an eternity of torment apart from God’s love.”— Paul David Tripp
Instruments in The Redeemer's Hands(Phillipsburg, NJ: P & R Publishing, 2002), 195

I got this from OF FIRST IMPORTANCE, and you can click this sentence to go to their site for other gems.
