„Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.“Galatians 3:13
Redemption is a spiritual comprehensive insurance for a life of dignity. It is not limited to the soul and spirit. It covers all areas of human endeavour. This is why your understanding of it is very important, so that you can enjoy all that God Himself has in stock for you. „For whosoever the son of man shall set free, he shall be free all around.“John 8:36
And lets take a look at Psalm 103:1-5: (A psalm of David) „Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle‘s.“ Psalm 103:1-5.
This is a prophetic insight to our redemptive package in Christ. We are born again to reign again. Christianity is life according to John 10:10b „I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.„
New birth is not for fun. It is no religion. Rather, it represents a change of status that places you far above all principalities, power and dominion. Salvation in Christ is your only way out of destruction. Many who are born again do not understand the worth of the redemptive ticket they carry. But it is high time you understood the benefits loaded in your redemption. Your salvation is not just an escape route to heaven as it were, no! There is more to it.
We have been called unto glory and virtue yet many are suffering under challenges which Christ has redeemed us from by giving His life for us.
When you understand your redemptive rights and positioning, you will develop and constantly carry a victory mentality. Until you know and have an understanding of who you are, by virtue of your new birth, you may still remain in the very bondage of Satan from which Jesus has already set you free.
„Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.“ Galatians 5:1 Standing in the freedom will require an understanding of the riches of redemption. Remember Jesus came on an everlasting mission to restore man to the life of God, which Adam lost to Satan. Before Jesus came, man was in a perishing state, stripped of all honour, dignity and power. Man had lost control of every aspect of life and has come under the control of the evil one. Without Christ, anyone who is not born again is still in the state of perishing under Satan’s reign of terror.
An understanding of your redemptive rights and privileges is the master key to freedom and a life of fulfillment. New birth is much more than merely responding to an altar call. An in-depth understanding of your new status in Christ is required to reflect the heavenly life here on earth.
This month, God is taking us into a new journey about redemption in a deeper understanding of the glorious riches of the new life in Christ!
Don’t miss it for anything!
God bless you
