πŸ‘‘ Redeemed

β€œWe have redemption through His blood…” (Eph. 1 :7).

Our English word β€œredeem” is actually a translation of three beautiful Greek words:

Agarazo: to buy at the market.

Ex-agarazo: to buy out of the market.

Lutro: to set free (upon receipt or payment of the ransom
price.)

It is the last of these that is used in Eph. 1:7. The believer in Christ has liberty β€” purchased liberty β€” through Christ’s shed blood.

First we were β€œbought with a price” and β€œredeemed to God” (I Cor. 6:20; Rev. 5:9). Further, we were β€œredeemed from the curse of the law” (Gal. 3:13). And now, best of all, we have been set gloriously free (Eph. 1:7; Gal. 5:1).

Why not turn in your Bible to Ephesians 1:6-8 and read this brief passage thoughtfully to see the boundless generosity of God’s dealings with those who put their trust in Christ as their Savior.

β€œTo the praise of the glory of His grace” God β€œhath made us accepted [or, hath engraced us] in the Beloved One, ” in whom we have, β€œredemption” and β€œthe forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace, wherein He hath abounded toward us…”

Redeemed! Purchased out of the slave market of sin and the law β€” and set gloriously free! Does this foster loose, careless conduct? By no means! When our Lord had given a blind man his sight, He said to him: β€œGo thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole,” but the record hastens to add that he β€œfollowed Jesus in the way” (Mark 10:52).

Could anything be more natural? And could anything be more natural than a redeemed, liberated sinner longing to please and serve his divine Benefactor? The Apostle Paul expressed this well when he wrote, in II Cor. 5:14: β€œThe love of Christ constraineth us.” source

Verse for 2/21/2018

For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. — Romans 13:9-10
