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.
