Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: Redeemer
    For I know that my Redeemer lives,
    and He shall stand at last on the earth.
    Job 19:25
    Jesus is the Redeemer. Before you were saved, you were owned by sin and the Devil, but Jesus bought you with a special redemptive price. “You were not redeemed with . . . silver and gold, . . . but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb” (1 Peter 1:18-19). Jesus is your Redeemer, and now you belong to Him.
    Lord, I sometimes forget what I was before You saved me. Never let me forget how You redeemed me. Thank You for releasing me from the prison house of sin. I am no longer a slave of the Devil. How can I serve You?
    Jesus is your Redeemer because He took your curse: “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us” (Galatians 3:13). He was punished for your sin; you are no longer in bondage to sin—you are free! But as your Redeemer, Jesus did more than pay the price to release you from bondage; He made you a child of God: “God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children.” (Galatians 4:5). Now you’re a part of God’s family; now you have a privileged position in His family. Your Redeemer has taken you from being a slave to sin and made you a part of God’s family.
    Thank You, Redeemer, for not leaving me stranded in sin. Thank You for bringing me into Your family and making me Your child. “Redemption” is a wonderful word. I enjoy my new position in You. Amen.

    Jesus redeemed you and made you a member of God’s family.
