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

Bible Verse for 8/9/20

Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. — Luke 12:6-7
