Redeemed, Set Free
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.
Ephesians 1:7,8 NIV
Isn't it amazing how God set us free from a life of worry, and how He made us in His image, how God sent His Son to save us from a afterlife of punishment.
Through the blood of God's Son Jesus Christ we are set free from life of worry and pain. Yes, we will have trials in our lives, but Jesus said it would not be easy for He has overcame the world. We do sin, yes. We fall into sin, but He is faithful and will forgive us our sins.
This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.
We all need to be led in the right direction, when we we're little we mostly needed our parents to guide us in the right direction, but as we grew up we needed a Savior to lead us in the paths of His direction, His ways. The world will rip us apart, but we have a Savior that will never forsake us. That is why He went to the cross for us, so we could live for Him, and live with Him in heaven someday.
Jesus knows our needs, He knows us more than we know ourselves, He has every hair on our heads numbered. He is amazing.
A lifetime without Him would be terrible. I never could figure out how others that don't have a relationship with Him got through this life, it's so hard without someone to guide us in our lives today.
the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer;
Always remember the words above, He is our redeemer, He will never forsake us, He said so..we are redeemed by His blood shed on the cross.
A few weeks ago I was at church and taking communion. Well this time I felt it was different. Instead of just sitting in my chair, I felt I had to kneel down at my chair and pray, thanking Him for the cross and repenting of my sins..I had tears falling down my face as I rose, and I felt like He really heard me, as I prayed to my Savior and recognizing what He did for me on the cross. He died so I could be with Him in Heaven. That is a wonderful Savior.
God bless you and remember He is the only way to the Father and to Heaven.
Jesus did all the work so we owe Him all we have.
