Psalm 71:23 “My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed”
We are like pilgrims here, sojourners if you will, for this is not our home. This is part of the song of redemption that we sing for we have been redeemed to serve and praise the living God and to spend eternity with Him.
Psalm 111:9 “He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant forever: holy and reverend is his name”
Luke 1:68 “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel for he hath visited and redeemed his people”
It is a covenant of Grace made with Christ, it is everlasting and sure, it stands fast with Christ forever and can never be removed and it has come in the flesh, in Christ Jesus!
Ephesians 1:7 “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace”
Hebrews 9:12 “Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption”
In the flesh He came to shed His precious blood, to redeem us from sin, to redeem us from the curse of the law, to purchase our inheritance with the saints! This is our life, a redeemed life and there is nothing more profound than to know the One who has redeemed us, the only worthy One, the Lord Jesus Christ!
Revelation 5:9 “And they sang a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and has redeemed us to God by thy blood, out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.”
I think of my blessed Redeemer
I think of Him all the day long:
I sing, for I cannot be silent;
His love is the theme of my song.....
All praise and glory to Him alone!
