“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace”

Ephesians 1:7 (NIV)

‘Redemption’ is one of those big bible words that we sometimes browse over. But this word has “foundation to our faith” type meaning…

The idea here is to purchase a slave off the market who cannot pay his debts. He has been sold into slavery, because of his inability to pay his debts. And someone now has come along and paid his debt for him, has redeemed him.

We owed a debt we could not pay. We were sold into the slavery of sin. But Jesus paid the debt that we owed by shedding His blood. His horrible crucifixion death was the price tag. Think about it, He paid it!


Heavenly Father, thank You for paying for my freedom and eternal life. Remind me of that purchase so that my day will reflect my enormous appreciation. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
