Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy, – Ps. 107:2
Jesus is our redeemer! Hallelujah! Our Savior. He died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and rose on the third day. The message of the cross manifests the power of God. There is no greater message. We believe it happened, but as we come to understand what it means, our faith grows in all its benefits, from faith to faith.
We cannot celebrate the resurrection of Jesus without understanding His crucifixion. Comprehending it also enables us to reckon, identify with His crucifixion and His resurrection. Our co-crucifixion and co-resurrection are a reality that is life transforming.
A penalty for sin needed to be paid. Jesus gave His life a ransom for us. With His own blood, He obtained eternal redemption (Hebrews 9:12). He delivered us from the penalty of sin. We are currently being delivered from the power of sin through the Holy Spirit and will be delivered from the presence of sin eternally. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!
We believe in our redemption, reconciliation, and righteousness through Christ. The Lord wiped out the handwriting requirement that was against us and nailed to the cross. We rejoice in our salvation and give God praise, honor, and glory. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, from glory to glory!
