The day we accept Christ is not the day of our redemption. That day was when Jesus died on the cross, accomplishing the redemption of all. The day we accept Christ is the day of our salvation, the day we recognize our redemption and enter into the life of Christ, and welcome His life into our own.
Through Jesus, God opened the way of freedom and divine harmony to everyone–His tender mercies are over all His works. The day of my salvation is the day that awareness moves from my head, as a generalization, to my heart, as a lived-in reality.
That the Lord is good to all is the wisdom of a prophet; that the Lord is good to me is the wisdom of a redeemed sinner.
