“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us.” (Ephesians 1:7-8a)
Redemption is a familiar word in our society but, without looking to the Word of God, the spiritual meaning is unfamiliar. In our Western world, we redeem coupons and vouchers and understand that handing it in at the right time and place will result in receiving something. But redemption in the Kingdom is so much deeper. As believers in Christ Jesus, we’re aware that we’re redeemed, just as we know we are blessed and chosen. But do we really know the magnitude of our redemption?
