Paul uses the term, redemption, as one of the processes by which Christ secured salvation for believers. He states that redemption comes from Christ (Romans 3:24). Paul writes in Titus 2:14 that Jesus “gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness” (NIV), or “from all iniquity” (RSV). Jesus “rescued us from the dominion of darkness ” and it is in Jesus that we have redemption and the forgiveness for our sins (Colossians 1:13-14).
As Paul explains, Jesus willingly offered Himself as the payment for our ransom. Christians “were bought at a price” (1 Corinthians 6:20, 7:23). The price paid for our redemption was Christ’s shed blood on the cross (Ephesians 1:7). Jesus said there was no greater love expressed than to lay down your life for a friend (John 15:13). But, Jesus demonstrated even greater love when he laid His life down for those who were His enemies.
Is there anything that God is asking you to do, that you look at it as too big a “price to pay” to be obedient? God did not consider it too great a cost (His Son) to pay to secure your future in Heaven!
