Re is a prefix meaning again or anew. One of the first re(s) to come to mind is reruns. I don’t know about you but I’m not very fond of watching television reruns, although certain channels in my satellite package are racked full of them. On the occasion that I forget to set the DVR, I can appreciate the encore presentation of my favorite shows. For some shows, it looks like certain episodes are repeated more than others. Kind of like how certain life events keep making reoccurrences in our lives. Sure the characters, dates, and times might be different but the underlying issue is repeated. Like the guy or gal’s name is different but the relationship ends up the same as all the others. The job is new but the results are same. Your location changes but the same problems follow you. Could it be that in the midst of the repetition God is giving us another opportunity to catch the lesson we missed before?
Retaking a life test is not always fun but I’m grateful for some do over’s in my life. Christ coming offers me REDEMPTION. When I’m empty He REPLENISHES me. Even when it looks like I’m on the losing in end, He promises to RESTORE. In my brokenness, He REPAIRS the breaches. He even offers a REWARD. As discouragement and feelings of giving up begin to overtake me, He will send along a word to REVIVE me.
