Read: Romans 3:23-24
A redeemer is a person who comes to save, rescue, or deliver someone out of trouble by paying a great price for his or her freedom. Jesus Christ is our living Redeemer because He came to save and deliver us out of sin by paying a great price for it. The price that Jesus Christ paid for our deliverance from sin was His life. He died on the cross for our sins so that He may redeem us, deliver us, and save us from our sins. “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23-24). Our sin was leading us to hell. But thanks be to God for sending His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, who redeemed us from our sin and shame and promised us eternal life. “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45). Gal. 3:13 says, “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, “Cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree.” The penalty for our sins was already paid by Jesus on the Cross.
We might feel guilty and overburdened by the weight of our sin, but we can confess and repent to God. 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” We can find redemption in Jesus Christ because He is our Living Redeemer. 1 Pet. 1:18-19 says, “…you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” No precious thing in this world could redeem us from the wretchedness of sin. It is only by the sinless and precious blood of Jesus that we are set free from sin and death. Can we thank Him for the redemption from sin and eternal damnation?
