Confess the Wonder of: Our Redemption
Because of our sin—we are all slaves to unrighteousness, so we need redemption. Jesus died to take slaves and make them forever free—that’s redemption! A Sinner stands before God as a slave and is granted freedom by Christ’s payment.
Christ’s death to pay the price of our sin is so wonderful that, as Revelation records, we, the redeemed of all the ages, will join the angels, and together we sing a new song—
REVELATION 5:12 saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!” (NKJV)
In Redemption, we go from being a slave chained to our sins to complete freedom by God, and receive a new focus.
God liberates us from our slavery to sin, breaks sins chains that long enslaved us, and frees us to focus our lives on what really matters to Him.
• I CORINTHIANS 6:20, “For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” Christ bought me with a price—I belong to God.
• PHILIPPIANS 1:6, “…being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” Because Christ bought me in redemption—God will finish what He started in me.
• EPHESIANS 2:10, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Because Christ bought me in redemption—I am God’s workmanship.
Celebrate redemption in Jesus Christ tonight by confessing (agreeing with God) that redemption is only in Christ. Do this by saying aloud together:
“Thank you Jesus for redeeming me.”
