Flannery O’Connor said, “There is something in us, as storytellers and as listeners to stories, that demands the redemptive act, that demands that what falls at least be offered the chance to be restored.

The reader of today looks for this notion, and rightly so, but what he has forgotten is the cost of it.

His sense of evil is diluted or lacking altogether, and so he has forgotten the price of restoration.”The writer of today must have forgotten it too because I’m as guilty as the next girl of that diluted sense of evil. My own memory shuddered at what it needed to recall to bring this story to light.

While writing this book, I was reminded of the costliness of my own redemption. This is the story of barely making it out of a house on fire—literally and figuratively. This is the story of my prodigal journey in the far country, the boot-strapping self reliance that nearly made me an athiest, and my long and anticipated return—where Christ had been waiting to welcome me to back to my true home, to His table, to lavish his gifts on someone as far gone as even me.

Mostly, it’s the story of a war that is being waged against us all and how our Father has been on a covert mission to drop down aid to us, which He has done in the form of the His own incarnate Son. That Son, our Savior, has given his very life to ensure our rescue.

We all wake up one day to find that the world is on fire and we are in enemy territory, the greatest enemy being the sin and death that live in our own bodies. Christ has come to fight our battles, to wage war on sin, death and hell, to bring us safely to Him, our perfect and final place of peace and rest. His Father love is so compelling and so complete that even the most lost can be found, the most devastated, restored.Read more at http://www.lifeingraceblog.com/introd...
