Psalm 71:23 – 24 “My lips will shout for joy when I sing Praises to you; my soul also, which you have Redeemed, and my tongue will talk of your righteous help all the day long…”

What comes to your mind when you hear the word “Redeemed” in the Word of God? What comes to my mind immediately is that ‘Redeemed’ brings me to think of God’s amazing gift of salvation through the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and because of that we have been redeemed from the pit of Hell and also providing “abundant Life” here on earth.

Redemption literally means “saving or improving something that has declined into a poor state”. Without the redemption of our souls through faith in Jesus Christ we remain “declined and in a poor state”.  Hence our Redeemer came. Jesus Christ is our Redeemer.

Please read the scriptures below:

The Bible says that we are –

  1. Redeemed from the “Grave” – Psalm 49:15
  2. Redeemed from Death – Hosea 13:14
  3. Redeemed from the Law – Galatians 4:5
  4. Redeemed from all wickedness – Titus 2:14
  5. Redeemed from the curse – Galatians 3:13
  6. Redeemed from the Pit – Ps. 103:4

“Who redeems you from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,”  Psalm 103:4

The Apostle Paul summarized it by saying, “Live a life worthy of the Lord, to please Him in every way, bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to His Glorious might, so that you might have endurance…” Colossians 1:10

Gods Word is Truth and it is purposed for His people to live the Redeemed life in Christ and to have abundant “Faith, Love, Hope and JOY in our relationship with Him and each other as Believers in Christ.

As a result of this great Redemptive gift from God we have free access to a Personal Relationship with Father, Son and Holy Spirit both now and Forever. So as we read in scripture above may our “Lips shout for Joy” our voices sing “Praise to our God” and our “tongue will talk of His righteousness all the day long”.

Its not an easy task to take on in these difficult days we are going through, but we are still living the ‘Redemptive’ Life in Christ and we have great promises from God for Living, speaking and even singing “Praises to our great Redeemer”

Time to sing with me:

I’ve been redeemed (I’ve been redeemed)
by the blood of the Lamb. (by the blood of the Lamb.)
I’ve been redeemed (I’ve been redeemed)
by the blood of the Lamb,
I’ve been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb,
filled with the Holy Ghost I am.
All my sins are washed away,
I’ve been REDEEMED.

May the Lord bless you and your precious Family.
In the Love of the Lord Jesus,
John and Barbara
