Redeemed By Christ

Colossians 1:14 (ESV)  14in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.  Nothing is more basic than redemption. Without redemption we are dead. Without redemption we have no adoption by God as his child and by which we cry ‘Abba Father’. Without redemption our lives are without meaning and without peace. Without redemption we are the saddest creatures of all.

BUT

In Christ we are redeemed – we are re-born in the Spirit and it is no longer we who live but Christ who lives in us and the life we now live as redeemed children of God is lived by faith in Christ. To be redeemed is to know everything we could ever need has already been provided – we need not be anxious about anything because we have been redeemed by Christ. Amen.
