YOU ARE REDEEMED
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree. (Galatians 3:13)
“It is an insult to God for you to stay in prison when Jesus paid the price for your release!” – Mark Hankins
There are three simple, yet powerful statements made in Galatians 3:13. Let’s take a closer look. The first is the fact that you are redeemed. The second is what you are redeemed from — the curse of the law. The third is what you were redeemed by — Christ was made a curse for you. Christ took your curse so you could go free.
The center of the Gospel is what God has done for you in Christ. The curse of the law has been broken, not for just a few select individuals, but for “whosoever” will hear and believe in the Gospel.
Jesus paid much too high a price for your freedom for you to stay bound. It is an insult to God for you to stay in prison when Jesus paid the price for your release. Satan cannot hold you. Sin cannot hold you. The past cannot hold you. Remember our first fact: YOU ARE REDEEMED!
Confession: Christ hath redeemed me now — not just when I go to heaven. Satan cannot hold me. Sin cannot hold me. My past cannot hold me! The curse of the law is broken in my life. I am redeemed!
