We preachers have a habit of using terms that many people, especially new Christians or visitors to our churches, simply don’t understand. I was reminded of this recently when someone approached me after a sermon and asked what the difference is between “reconciliation” and “redemption.”

It’s a good question. These two words can be used to describe aspects of God’s work of salvation for the world through Jesus Christ. To reconcile means to patch up a quarrel, or to make a relationship that has become strained right again. To redeem means to buy back, or to claim ownership.

My grandparents came to the USA from Karpathos, Russia sometime early in the last century to escape the Communist Revolution. That was a good move – no one knows for certain how many people lost their lives during that revolution and the reign of Stalin that followed. Families were torn apart, their loved ones tortured, murdered or lost forever in the concentration camps. It is not the kind of thing I like to think about. But when I hear the talk of revolution in modern America by youthful protestors, I wonder if they know what they are asking for?
