THE GIFT OF REDEMPTION



You are learning about your giving God, laying a proper foundation to enable you to

receive adequate provision to accomplish your destiny. You have viewed His generosity

through creation. Now let's look at His gift of redemption.


In Old Testament times, sacrifices and offerings were vital in the lives of the Israelites.

God used these for generations to prepare His people for the day when Christ would offer

His life as the only sacrifice sufficient to permanently cleanse mankind's sin. The

sacrifices and offerings were necessary because without the shedding of blood there is no

remission for sin. The Old Testament sacrificial system served as a reminder of the need

for a Savior who would die once and for all for the sins of all mankind.


Centuries later, God sent Jesus to the world as His greatest gift to mankind. He gave His

only Son willingly as a sacrificial offering for our sins: "For God so loved the world,

that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but

have everlasting life" (John 3:16).


God sent Jesus to earth in the form of human flesh to bear your sins, to shed His blood,

and to restore you to fellowship with Him. Jesus shed His blood willingly. No one took

His life from Him, but He laid it down of His own free will:


Hence, when He (Christ) entered into the world, He said, Sacrifices and offerings

You have not desired, but instead You have made ready a body for Me (to offer);

In burnt offerings and sin offerings You have taken no delight. Then I said, Lo,

here I am, come to do Your will, oh God; (to fulfill) what is written of Me in the

volume of the Book. (Hebrews 10:5-7, AMP)


Because of this one perfect sacrifice, those who repent are forever set free from sin:

Whereas this One (Christ) after He had offered a single Sacrifice for our sins

(that shall avail) for all time, sat down at the right hand of God, Then to wait until

His enemies should be made a stool beneath His feet. For by a single offering He

has forever completely cleansed and perfected those who are consecrated and

made holy. (Hebrews 10:12-14, AMP)


There is no further sacrifice necessary to redeem you from sin. No longer is it necessary

for you to offer burnt offerings to God. You are able to enter into relationship with God

through that one perfect sacrifice. Through the blood of Jesus, you have been granted free

access to God whereby you are able to come fearlessly and boldly into His presence to

receive all you need from Him. God’s greatest gift is His only Son--especially the death

of His Son. Titus 2:14 describes Jesus as One "Who gave himself for us, that he might

redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good

works." First Timothy 2:6 says that Jesus "gave himself as a ransom for all." Paul

declares that you are "bought with a price" (1 Corinthians 6:20).


PRAYER:


My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
