REDEEMED


The word "redeemed" on this verse means to "buy out of slavery." Jesus came to buy us back to Himself by paying the price of the curse of our sin. The curse of sin is death. During the time of the Roman period, any person who disobeys the law of the land is cursed by hanging and nailing them on the cross. For example, the two men who were nailed with Jesus: one was a thief, and the other was a murderer.


Since we are all guilty of our sin, we are cursed to die for our sins. However, Jesus took our place on the cross. He became a curse for us. Although Jesus never sin, and He hates sin, He took our sin and put in on Himself so that He could carry the curse of our sin. He did it because He wanted us to live. Jesus redeemed us with His life. God wanted us to have a second chance.


When you are discouraged, disappointed, fearful, and committed error or sin, always remember that you are important to God. Since He gave His life and chose to become a curse for us, He would never give up on us. He will always be with us to guide us to the right path. Let us continue to trust our Lord Jesus, and obey Him in every area of our life.


As you pray today, thank our Lord for choosing to become a curse for us by taking our place on the cross. Also, write down your prayer request and lift them up to God.


Prayer:

Father in heaven, thank you for redeeming us through your Son, Jesus Christ. Thank you Jesus for taking my place on the cross. I am so grateful for redeeming me. Please help me to continue to know you, trust you, and obey you. Thank you Holy Spirit for helping me to understand the things of God. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
