Today is Your Best Day Because of Redemption
Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His (Jesus') own blood He entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. Hebrews 9:12 KJV
Jesus Christ is your Redeemer and His shed blood has secured your redemption. The Bible tells us that we were all prisoners who were held captive, without the hope of freedom, unless a ransom price was paid to free us. The blood of Jesus Christ is the ransom price that was paid to set us free from the captivity of Satan and the enslavement of sin. If a wealthy man paid all that he had to free his son from a person who was holding him captive, that ransom amount would give us some idea of what the life of that son was worth to his father. God paid a much higher price to redeem you and bring you back to Him.
I have enjoyed going to auctions throughout the years. One of the things that I find interesting about auctions is how much collectors and dealers are willing to pay for an item that comes up for bid. They seem to know what things are worth and are not afraid to bid on items they know are valuable. One lesson you can learn from an auction is that an item is only worth what someone is willing to pay.
The price to redeem you cost God everything. How much were you worth to God? What was your true value? You need only look to the blood of Jesus Christ to understand. You were worth, to God, the death of His Son. God paid more to redeem you than the total wealth there is upon the earth.
When the Bible says that you have been redeemed, it means that you have been absolutely freed, fully released, and totally delivered from all that had you bound in the past. Redemption also means that you have been redeemed from the guilt and condemnation that sin had over you. Today is your best day because you are a free man or woman who never needs to be enslaved again. Today is your best day because God was willing to pay the price of the death of His Son to redeem you as His own. God has redeemed you, not to set you aside, ignore you, or let you get dusty on a shelf. He has redeemed you because He loves you, cares about you, treasures you, and has a plan and purpose for your life. ...
