January 31 – Jesus Christ – Our Redemption

1 Corinthians 1:30

But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.

Colossians 1:14

“In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:”


Redemption is a divine buy-back from satan, sin and all its consequences. Our opening Scripture reveals that God has made Jesus Christ unto us Redemption, which means He is the ransom for our rescue from satan, sin and all its consequences. We have every right to walk free from satan’s, sin’s and hell’s dominion because Jesus was offered a ransom for us. 2 Corinthians 5:21 tells us that God made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.

Indeed, Jesus is our redemption; He is the reason the devil cannot lay any claim on us and ours, for we have been bought with the price of the blood of Jesus Christ. We no longer belong to satan and his cohorts. We only belong to Jesus and to Him alone. Beloved, the devil does not have any legal right to you and yours. You belong to Jesus – spirit, soul and body. Don’t let the enemy lay any illegal claim on you and yours. Jesus has set you free from him and his. Hallelujah!

Colossians 1:14 tells us that we have redemption in Christ Jesus. Not only is He our redemption, we also have our redemption in Him. The reason why we have our redemption in Him is because of the eternal insurance God predetermined in the beginning that we might never lose our redemption; therefore it is insured in Him; He Himself being our redemption. Awesome, isn’t it? Beloved, hold fast to the redemption that you have in Christ by holding fast to Jesus Christ, for He is your redemption. Stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ has made you free and be not entangled again with any yoke of bondage. Jesus Christ is your redemption.

 

My Solid Front (Confession): In the Name of Jesus Christ, I declare that Jesus Christ is my redemption and I am free from every entanglement of darkness; the devil has no claim on me and mine anymore, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
