Redemption, according to Dictionary.com, is an act of redeeming or atoning for a fault or mistake, or the state of being redeemed. Another definition of redemption is deliverance or rescue. When speaking of Theology, redemption is the deliverance from sin, salvation, or the atonement for guilt. Now, here are some of my favorite definitions of redemption which are the repurchase, as of something sold, paying off, as of a mortgage, bond, financial note, or the recovery by payment, as of something pledged or owed... Psalms 49;7 and 8 tells us that no man, woman, or child can pay a ransom for their own redemption, "for the redemption of their soul is precious". So, we can see that there is nothing that we can do to redeem ourselves, we can only be redeemed by the Love and the Blood of Christ Jesus's sacrifice on the cross... I Corinthians 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins... Ephesians 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption... "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption" wow, there it goes again, the Holy Spirit! It's by the Spirit that we live and it's by the Holy Spirit that we are Redeemed... no matter the crime, no matter the time, without Christ, there is no redemption... So many people fall into that trap that I've done this, or I've done that, there is no way out, but God has sent His only begotten Son into this world of chaos and sin so that we may have a chance at life, so that instead of condemnation for our sin, we can receive Redemption for our Righteousness through the Holy Spirit who was sent as the comforter after Jesus Christ ascended into heaven and the promise of Acts 1:8 was fulfilled... The gifts of God are Freely Given, all you must do is ask and Grace, Mercy, Redemption, and the Holy Ghost can all be yours... God Bless... Amen...
