The Watered Soul: He Already Paid the Price

He Already Paid the Price

Any day is perfect day to reflect upon God’s redemption plan but as we prepare to remember the burial and resurrection of Christ, it seems even more fitting. Dictionary.com defines redeemed as:

  1. to buy or pay off; clear by payment: to redeem a mortgage.
  2. to buy back, as after a tax sale or a mortgage foreclosure.
  3. to recover (something pledged or mortgaged) by payment or other satisfaction: to redeem a pawned watch.
  4. to exchange (bonds, trading stamps, etc.) for money or goods.
  5. to convert (paper money) into specie.
  6. to discharge or fulfill (a pledge, promise, etc.).
  7. to make up for; make amends for; offset (some fault,shortcoming, etc.
  8. to obtain the release or restoration of, as from captivity, by paying a ransom.
  9. Theology . to deliver from sin and its consequences by means of a sacrifice offered for the sinner.

The debt that I owe is too great for me ever to repay. Through the shedding of Christ’s blood and subsequent resurrection, he released me from the chains my sins bought me.

But the LORD will redeem those who serve him. Everyone who trusts in him will be freely pardoned. Psalms 34:22 (NLT)

Yet they cannot redeem themselves from death by paying a ransom to God. Psalms 49:7

hi Wanda:)

a few weeks ago i was listening to a podcast(sermon) concerning Jesus our Redeemer. it's a word i didn't really understand and i hadn't given it much thought, really. it had gotten glossed over. there's SO MUCH to His Word that i know i will never know the depth or the richness of His Word until someday....:)

think i will listen to that sermon again. thank you for the reminder!

Thank you Jesus! I think of the words of an old chorus, "When I think of the goodness of Jesus, and what he has done for me, my soul cries out, Hallelujah! Thank God for saving me."

Thanks for your thoughtful post, Wanda.
