REDEMPTION: AN EVERLASTING RELEASE

Who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. (1 Timothy 2:6)

 

“Christianity does not begin with something you do, but with something that has been done for you in Christ.” – Mark Hankins

 

Faith begins by knowing redemption facts. God paid the price for you in Christ two thousand years ago. Everything Jesus did in His death and resurrection was

done for you, or as some translations say, “in your behalf.”  You could say Jesus gets the glory for everything that has been done, but you get the credit because He was acting in your behalf.

Satan’s dominion over mankind has been permanently broken because of what Christ has done. Redemption is not a temporary thing that must be added to by man or replaced later by something more effective. The Amplified Bible calls it, “A complete redemption, and an everlasting release.” (Hebrews 9:12) An everlasting release means it lasts forever. God has left nothing out.

 

Confession: All that I need is supplied in Christ. My past, present, and future have been taken care of.  My spirit, soul, and body have been taken care of — all because of what Jesus has done for me!
