There is a great difference between Restoration and Redemption.
It is the same difference between John the Baptist and Jesus.
John was asked only asked to restore and not the Redeem.
We call ourselves a failure when we attempt the redemption- part of the plan of God.
Redemption is the business of God.
Let God work his own part. in his own time, in his own way.
We shall not make ourselves miserable with the unnecessary.
