the liberated life
What is salvation? And why do we need it?
According to Timothy Keller, "Salvation is liberation. Salvation is how God intervenes in our lives to liberate us from the things that would enslave us and kill us ... If you build your identity on anything rather than God, more than God, it becomes something that enslaves you.
We are looking at Exodus and the life of Moses to help us understand the most powerful image of redemption in the Old Testament: the liberation of the Hebrew people from Egyptian bondage. If we are honest with ourselves, we know that we, too, are enslaved. We are in bondage to sex, money, and power; materialism, entertainment, and our own desires. Like the Hebrew people, we need liberation. We need redemption. We need a Redeemer.
