Redemption is a term we often hear in Christian circles, but what should it mean to the Christian? By definition, redemption is what God accomplished through his Son, our Redeemer Jesus Christ, when he laid down his life on the cross. For those of us who have called upon the blessed Name of Jesus Christ, our lives were purchased through his sacrifice, yet many Christians live their lives with little difference from the unredeemed of this world. Why is this?
God’s love for mankind is in full display through the story of redemption, and there is no better way to understand the accomplishment of Jesus Christ than to delve into what the Word of God says about it.
