"But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of 
God is made unto us wisdom: and 
righteousness, sanctification, and redemption." 
1 Corinthians 1:30

Just like Christ is becoming our wisdom, our
regeneration, our sanctification, He is also
becoming our redemption. (It is an inward
journey is it not?)

Redemption: "To buy back or to free by
paying a ransom."

Three things go into redemption:
1 The helpless one--we were formerly slaves
    Romans 7:14
2 The Redeemer--Jesus paid the price.
    Mark 10:45
3 The price of redemption--His blood
   Galatians 3:13

The Lord Jesus is not only our redeemer, He is
our redemption. You see a redeemer saves but
does not connect. In redemption, Jesus has
become one with us. Our redemption is a person.
When we have Jesus, we have redemption, but
without Jesus we do not have redemption.

Dear reader, does this sound "old hat." I hope not.
My prayer for you is that God will repackage the
truth in such a way that you will go, "Wow! I
have never seen this before.
What a magnificent God I have!"

(This subject is not nearly finished.)

Thankful Corner:
Freezing rain falls outside, but it does not
touch me. Snow flakes here and there.
