1 Peter 1:18-19 “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”
The blood of Jesus Christ redeems us from the guilt and penalty of sin and the power of the Holy Spirit deliver from the very presence (dominion) of sin on the basis of Calvary:
Romans 8:2, “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”
Galatians 5:16, “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”
- Redemption is by the power of God.
Romans 3:24, “Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”
THE REDEEMER MUST BE ABLE (QUALIFIED) TO REDEEM Ruth 4:4-6; John 10:11-18.
So, the transaction is and can only be completed by the “Gawl” … redeemer paying the just demand in full Galatians 3:13, “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.” Also, I Peter 1:18-19.
The best part tonight is that there is a Kinsman for you and me.
- He is interested in your because you are a person and He will give you the inheritance of Heaven.
- He is qualified to redeem and paid with His precious blood.
Christ is our “Gawl,” our next Kinsman and He redeems both person and sin.
