Galatians Day 7 - Galatians 3:10-14
Redeemed....eight letters than mean so much; that cost so much, yet given freely to us.
Redeemed...purchase of something that had been lost; ransom for freedom.
Redeemed...debt not only cancelled and forgiven, but fully paid.
What we could never do was done for us. Though it was free to us, it came at a price. A holy sacrifice was made. A holy body broken, beaten, bloody, bound to a cross...hanging on a tree. Holy blood poured out. The curse of sin soaked in, absorbed, consumed. Paid for in full.
What began with the bite of fruit from a tree, spiraling out of control, was redeemed on a tree. It. Is. Finished.
Payment in full would have been enough. But in God’s lavish love for us, He also blesses us. He doesn’t just send us on our way forgiven in full, He makes us heirs...sons and daughters of His eternal kingdom.
God, let me never take lightly what was accomplished in that tree. Thank you for paying Your holy currency, Your blood, for my salvation.
