In the New Testament, the notion of redemption carries two meanings. First, it is regarded as the work of God in delivering His people from spiritual bondage to Himself, usually said to be the expense of Christ’s death. Second, it is also associated with eschatological deliverance and resurrection of God’s people at the return of Christ.
In the light of work of God, redemption is one of the most valuable promises for all man-kind. We know that in our own righteousness we cannot please God and we will die in the bondage of our own sin; however, God in His mercy, promises the way to redeem the sinful man back to Himself through the Sacrifice of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
God who did not spare His own Son and gave Him up for us for our salvation, how would He not provide for our other needs.
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin.1 John 1:7 – NIV
Putting it into practice
We must rejoice in this promise as God Himself cares for us and has provided us the way to be made right with God. The promise of redemption was fulfilled in Lord Jesus Christ and we now have a way to be made right with God. If you do not know Christ as your personal savior, today is the day for you rely on this promises and place your faith in Christ.
If you have already place your faith in Christ, remember, what God has done for us in Christ and He is now using us for His glory and His purpose. Remain bold, rely on His promise, and continue to live the life God has called you to do.
