Everyone in this world is in the need of redemption. The Bible tells us that, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”. (Romans 3:23). The word redeem means to “buy out”. God sent His Son Jesus to this world to take on our sin, at His death on the cross and because His blood was shed for us, we are no longer slaves to our sin. Jesus purchased our freedom so that we don’t have to have eternal separation from God. Jesus paid the price for our release from sin and its consequences. He rescued us!
The benefits for redemption include eternal life (Rev 5:9-10), forgiveness of sins (Eph 1:7), adoption into God’s family (Gal 4:5), Peace with God (Col 1:18-20), the indwelling of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 6:19-20), deliverance from sin’s bondage (1 Peter 1:14-18, Titus 2:14). To be redeemed, means we have been forgiven, adopted, justified, freedom, reconciled, & set apart to do good works.
