 “His Physical for Our Spiritual, LIFE"

7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, 8 which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight 9 making known[c] to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ 10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.

Ephesians 2:7-10 (ESV)

 

What does it mean for us to “need” redemption? Most people you communicate this need to this to would tell you,” I’m not such a bad person, and what do you mean I need redemption? No one owns me, I am my own person!

But that could not be further from the truth. When Satan was able to defile “Adam” or the genesis of all mankind, every other man (and woman) will also need reconciliation from this diabolical purchase made when Adam and Eve disobeyed God at the beginning of time. EVERYTHING was now held hostage by sin.

I think the most incredible part of all of this is that God is redeeming us not because we have been “good long enough”, remember that as a kid? If you were good enough long enough you would feel that acceptance and love again. No, there is no way any one of us could do this, let alone billions of us. God simply redeemed us because he is a good, good God.

Ephesians  1:7-10
 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, 8 which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight 9 making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ 10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.


Guys, that’s not just Christ taking the punishment for stealing that bicycle, or lying, it’s quite literally creating a situation by which Christ’s physical death unlocks our spiritual life trading the temporal for the eternal and the insufficient for the overflow.

Remember this was done FOR you… Think about the significance and selflessness of that act and remember to tell others that all they need to do is walk out of that cell and that they can be free as well.
 
-Matt K
