Sojourners East of Eden

Israel’s redemption from her former slavery never drifted far from her corporate memory. This was due to God’s frequent and gracious reminders that they were once sojourners in the land of Egypt. Likewise, we Christians must never forget who we were before our release from the shackles of sin and death. This talk will focus on our identity as a saved sojourner east of Eden. In addition to this, we will explore how our gratitude for this redemption from sin’s bondage ought to not only evoke compassion and empathy for fellow sons of Adam and daughters of Eve who wander east of Eden—just as we once did—but also inform the ways that we reach out to them.
